Al Murphy, sheriff of a small town in New Mexico, investigates several murders.
Drifting aimlessly after the death of his wife, Al Murphy comes across a price war and is hired to ride shotgun. Fast-paced western.
"Sheriff Al Murphy had no jurisdiction in the Arizona Territory, but that didn't matter because Risa Villabisencio needed his help. Many years ago Risa and her husband, Santiago, had taken in the wounded sheriff and nursed him, saving his life." "Santiago was a lawyer and a leader of the small Mexican community in San Patricio and the surrounding area; he had even tried to enlist the aid of the governor when justice was not forthcoming from the local law. A few weeks ago Santiago and his two sons had been waylaid as they headed to see the U.S. marshal in Vera Cruz to report that cattleman Ben King had murdered two Mexican goatherders. Santiago never reached Tucson. His buggy was found, with blood on the seat. There was no sign of Santiago or his sons." "Murphy retraced Santiago's trail, following every possible lead. It was almost futile for one man to go up against King and his men, but Murphy found that help sometimes came when he least expected it and from the most unlikely of allies."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Sixteen years old in 1886, Runs With Horses is a member of the last small band of Apaches continuing to resist the U.S. Army. His training for manhood as a Chiricahua Apache has been difficult but thrilling, and he is eager to accomplish the final two of the four raids required to be-come a warrior. Sadly, this is not possible when they at last surrender to the U.S. Army. "With its compact size, terse sentences, large print, and action-packed plot, the book is certain to lure reluctant readers, and history buffs will applaud the factual epilogue and bibliography."--Booklist
After a surprise attack leaves many of her people dead, fifteen-year-old Walks Alone, an Apache girl wounded in the massacre, struggles to survive and rejoin the refugee band.
