"Dave DeWitt's 1880s battle novel is so well-crafted, it's hard to believe he wasn't actually there. DeWitt has crafted an entertaining, enlightening novel that will hopefully not be his last. It's well-known that an attention to detail differentiates a good chef from a great one; DeWitt's skills have clearly carried over into the realm of novel writing." -- Tucson Weekly.

Superbly portrays the cultural differences and motivations ... grows like a hunger!" -- POSH Magazine CLICK HERE FOR THE WHOLE REVIEW

"Balanced ... quite vivid ... likely to whet the reader's appetite to learn more!" -- Amazon.com CLICK HERE FOR THE WHOLE REVIEW

"Dramatic, moving story ... historical fiction at its best! Powerful! This is a book for every American citizen to read and pass along to their offspring. Brilliantly written, this is a story that will haunt the reader long after the cover is closed." --

"This swiftly moving tale of death and revenge has long needed to be told.--True West Magazine, October 2007 CLICK HERE FOR THE WHOLE REVIEW

"Effectively fictionalizes ... DeWitt's storytelling weaves together the perspectives of the opposing sides, providing insight into the events of the period, and the personalities, motivations and cultural differences of the key players in the conflict. ... dynamic narrative format builds suspense as the reader eagerly awaits the discovery of which strategies will ultimately accomplish each side's goal—defeating the enemy… creates a kinship between a contemporary reader and the usually intangible characters of New Mexico's past." -- New Mexico Magazine, September 2007 CLICK HERE FOR THE WHOLE REVIEW

"A fast-paced, fascinating, historical novel bound to entertain and educate at the same time. DeWitt’s technique of telling this tale from two perspectives–the Apache’s and the military–provides a truer sense of history and the cultures. ... Highly recommend to readers who enjoy historical western-type novels. Genre: Fiction/SW History; Rating: Excellent" -- MidWest Book Reviews, September 2007 and Kaye Trout’s Book Reviews, August 21, 2007 CLICK HERE FOR THE WHOLE REVIEW

"Dave DeWitt created engaging and believable characters on both sides of the conflict, showing their motivation and their beliefs.... a well-rounded volume about fighters on both sides of the encounter as well as a very eye-opening read about the Apache culture and customs. ... an enthralling book, which grabs you quickly and does not let go. If you are like me, your only disappointment will be that it ends too quickly." -- ReaderViews.com CLICK HERE FOR THE WHOLE REVIEW

"... a throughly engrossing tale that takes the reader on a legendary journey ...For historical value alone, this book is a winner, yet it will intrigue you with its tales, its characters, and its sense of location, pulling you deeper and deeper into its depths, until you find yourself fully absorbed and engrossed in the territorial history of the late 1800’s, never wanting it to end. I have never enjoyed a historical novel as much as I did this one." -- DawnEagle Summers, BellaOnline.com CLICK HERE FOR THE WHOLE REVIEW

"Historical fiction at its best. I especially appreciated DeWitt’s detail in describing the traditions, customs, and celebrations of the Apache Indians. .... This is a book for every American citizen to read and pass along to their offspring. The story is a reminder of the high price paid by the frontiersman and settlers of the West. It is also a reminder of the high price paid by the American Indian in their attempt to maintain their land, culture and way of life. Brilliantly written, this is a story that will haunt the reader long after the cover is closed on the last chapter." --
