He was etched by the desert’s howling winds, a big, broad-shouldered man who knew the ways of the Apache and the ways of staying alive. She was a woman alone raising a young son on a remote Arizona ranch. And between Hondo Lane and Angie Lowe was the warrior Vittoro, whose people were preparing to rise against the white men. Now the pioneer woman, the gunman, and the Apache warrior are caught in a drama of love, war, and honor.

User Review  - jimocracy - LibraryThing

This book was okay for what it was. The author didn't do a very good job of making me, the reader, care about one single character and the plot was pretty shallow. I don't think that this kind of writing really stands the test of time but it was mildly entertaining. Read full review

User Review  - moonimal - LibraryThing

Very western-y. Hard to imagine anything except a John Wayne western (though I've never seen one) when reading this. The book felt very tired and shallow, though it may have set the standard for the genre. Read full review
