Anyone who has read Fred Grove's material knows first hand that he is both a terrific stylist and talented author; in addition an author of great research, knowledge, and authenticity. This book deals with a young boy, Jimmy Lattimore, captured in a stagecoach attack by an Apache raiding party led by Juh, a ruthless and cruel war chief who even other Apaches shun, who has moved with the boy to the farthest reaches of the Burro mountain area of New Mexico. The task at hand for Jesse Wilder and the child's mother, Susan Lattimore, is to enlist the help of Miguel Garcia, a mejicano who suffered the same experience as Jimmy, to reach the Apaches and arrange a ransom back of the young child. The Apaches see the activity of ransom as weakness and according to Cochise in the novel have never done it. In the pages of this western novel both fictional and historical characters come alive so the reader can almost feel, touch and taste the desert, the mountains, and feel the dread of being in close proximity to the 'human tigers' of these rough, deadly terrains, the Apaches. This novel of people in the post civil war west will both entertain and educate the reader as the story unfolds. If you enjoy westerns and human interest yarns, this one should not be missed. Unfortunately the book is at this late date generally available only through 2nd hand book dealers. But if the interest is there a copy can certainly be obtained. And I'm betting the reader will want to also read the other 2 or 3 books in the Jesse Wilder saga, BITTER TRUMPET and MAN ON A RED HORSE. Highly recommended by an ole "book"aroo such as myself. Semper Fi.
