Avenging Victorio: A Novel of the Apache Insurgency in New Mexico, 1881
A rag-tag group of Apache warriors, led by an elderly man in his late seventies, took on the U.S. Army’s Ninth Cavalry in revenge for the death of Apache war chief Victorio. Using guerilla warfare, they led raids through New Mexico evading the Cavalry and Buffalo Soldiers. In the end, they won! Interesting historical characters abound, including Billy the Kid and author/politician Lew Wallace.
