Some call her the Apache Joan of Arc.
For more than a century, Apaches have kept alive the memory of their hero Lozen. Lozen, valiant warrior, revered shaman, and beautiful woman, fought alongside Geronimo, Cochise, and Victorio, holding out against the armies of both the United States and Mexico.
Here, at last, is her compelling story, set in the last half of the nineteenth century. Orphaned sister of Victorio, Lozen has known since childhood that the spirits have chosen her to defend Apache freedom. As the U.S. army prepares to move her people to an Arizona reservation, Lozen forsakes marriage and motherhood to fight among the men. Supported by her brother and the other chiefs, Lozen proves her mettle as a soldier, reconnaissance scout, and peerless military strategist.
Rafe Collins is a young adventurer and veteran of the Mexican War. On a dangerous journey between El Paso and Santa Fe, he builds an unlikely but enduring rapport with the Warm Spring Apaches. When his bond to Lozen goes far beyond friendship, he must undertake a perilous course that will change his life forever.
A sensitive treatment of a little-known Native American figure, Ghost Warrior is a rich and powerful frontier tale with unforgettable characters.
