Ambush at Apache Pass

(A book in the Apache Wars series)
A novel by

Before he rode a black stallion, young Yakima Henry was a scout for the Arizona cavalry outpost Fort Hell, so named for its unforgiving desert locale and the many fearsome dangers that were all but routine... .

When Chiricahua Apaches attack a stagecoach bound for Fort Hell, Yakima Henry and fellow scout Seth Barksdale rush to defend it - only to discover that one of the fallen Apache is a blond-haired, blue-eyed white boy. This is shocking news to the fort's commanding officer, Colonel Ephraim Alexander. Years ago, his family was kidnapped during an Apache attack, and his desperate search was cut short by orders to evacuate. If this white Apache warrior is his son, can his wife and daughter still be alive?

The colonel charges Yakima and Seth to lead a search party. Riding as far as the forbidding Shadow Montanas in Mexico, they come up against a ruthless warrior queen - a beautiful blond white woman with cornflower blue eyes. Can this unlikely leader of the fierce Winter Wolf People and a pack of ex - Confederate desperadoes actually be the colonel's long-lost daughter? As bullets fly and blood paints the desert red, Yakima and Seth grow ever more determined to find the truth.
