1st ed.
Early in the Civil War, young Terry O'Neill becomes obsessed with the idea of fighting in the Indian wars and volunteers for assignment at Fort Stanton in rugged New Mexico. He joins the famous Colonel Kit Carson, campaigning against the Apaches and Navajos in the deadly snowstorms of Canyon de Chelly, only to find himself a part of the Navajos' torturous "Long Walk" to imprisonment at Fort Sumner. Struggling to understand the enigmatic Kit Carson while facing death, suffering, and the love of a beautiful Navajo girl, Terry O'Neill's cavalier outlook matures in this tender story of real people and actual events during a tragic period of the Old West. * * * * * John A. Truett grew up in Artesia, New Mexico, leaving after high school to serve with the U.S. Air Force in Japan and the Philippines during World War II. After the war, he received his B.B.A. from Woodbury University in Los Angeles and worked in the motion picture industry for 18 years where he was script supervisor on public service films and assisted in writing scripts and film editing. He later was editor of three different industry newsletters at various manufacturing companies in Los Angeles. After making his home in Roswell, New Mexico, he dedicated himself to writing western fiction based on historical events in the American Southwest. Mr. Truett is also the author of "Clay Allison, Legend of Cimarron" and "Monument in the Storm," both from Sunstone Press.
