Hair on Fire
Until the age of nine, Samuel J. Harcorne, Jr. lived with his family on the edge of Indian Country in Arkansas and northern Texas. In a time when Indian raids are commonplace, Sam sets out to go West and commences a life-changing journey into the world of the Quahada Comanche. With a quiet confidence empowering him to deal with whatever life hands him, Sam adjusts to his adoption by White Rump, a great Quahada warrior. Within a few years, Sam, now known as Sun Hawk, can no more identify with the white settlers- or his birth parents- than his adoptive family can. And now Sun Hawk sees the white man as an enemy to be vanquished. Hair on Fire is a powerful tale of one young man's coming of age- and his personal liberation under extraordinary circumstances.
