Killer of Witches

(2015)
(The first book in the Life and Times of Yellow Boy, Mescalero Apache series)
A novel by

 
Killer of Witches is a powerful story; it is the other side of Apache history,
lived by a people fighting the tsunami of westward migration and drawn from the
deep terrors of their supernatural beliefs. On a cold night in November 1865, at
General James H. Carlton's Bosque Redondo concentration camp near Fort Sumner,
New Mexico, five hundred Mescalero Apaches disappear like ghosts in the wind.
The Army never finds them. One of them, a five-year-old boy, becomes a legend.
Ussen, God, Creator of Life, gives to the boy gifts of power that include an
ability to send witches to the Happy Place, their spirits wandering forever in
darkness; an immunity to ghost sickness; and his name, Yellow Boy. Yellow Boy
uses his gifts in his search for a witch called Blood of the Devil, whose head
looks like a skull, and whose body is covered with black spiral and flame
tattoos. He has lead Comanches and Mexican banditos in the murder and scalping
of all but a small remnant of Yellow Boy's band. The hunt for Blood of the Devil
is an odyssey that takes Yellow Boy across the deserts, canyons, and mountains
of the American southwest and the Mexican states of Sonora and Chihuahua, and it
is filled with tests of the boy's skill, courage, and determination.
