Hombrecito's War

(The first book in the Vanishing series)
A novel by

It is historical fact that Albert Fountain - Indian fighter, lawman, well-known political figure, newspaper publisher, respected attorney - and his eight-year-old son, Henry, vanished on a cold winter's day near White Sands, New Mexico Territory, in 1896. They were never found. For over fifty years Henry Fountain kept secret his survival of the deadly ambush that killed Albert and his bloody war on the assassins. Yellow Boy, his Apache mentor, called him Hombrecito, "Little Man." Hombrecito: Half Anglo, half Mexican, all Apache. Hombrecito's War is a richly imagined myth of survival and revenge in the border southwest at the turn of the last century.

W. Michael Farmer lives and writes in Smithfield, Isle of Wight County, Virginia. He learned much of the rich story life of the southwest through living in Las Cruces, New Mexico, for nearly fifteen years. Although a physicist by training, as an author of western historical fiction he has published short stories in four anthologies, won awards for essays at the Christopher Newport University Writers' Conference, and published essays in magazines. His first novel in the Vanishing Trilogy, Hombrecito's War, won a Western Writers of America Silver Spur Award for Best First Novel in 2006 and was a New Mexico Book Award Finalist for Historical Fiction in 2007. The sequel, Hombrecito's Search, was released in July 2007. Tiger Tiger Burning Bright: The Betrayals of Pancho Villa, released in December 2011 completed the trilogy. His third novel, Conspiracy: The Trial of Oliver Lee and James Gililland, was published in 2009.
