 About the Book 

Upon his mothers death, David Rogers discovers a small suitcase containing historic photographs, military records, and Veterans Administration documents of his great grandfather, Sergeant (Brevet First Lieutenant) David A. Howcroft, U.S. Army, 4thMoreUpon his mothers death, David Rogers discovers a small suitcase containing historic photographs, military records, and Veterans Administration documents of his great grandfather, Sergeant (Brevet First Lieutenant) David A. Howcroft, U.S. Army, 4th Artillery Regiment. This discovery leads the author on three years of research and compells him to write this novel about his great grandfather, an honorably discharged veteran of the last U.S. Army campaigns against the resistant Chiricahua Apache. Geronimo and Lozen (Victorios younger sister) are historical characters who lead the Chiricahua resistance in the Southwest during the mid-1880s. Sergeant Howcroft encounters Lolotea, a fictional female character who is modeled after the historic woman warrior, Lozen. This historical, military fiction documents and embellishes actual battles, describes weapons and tactics of the military and Apache warriors, introduces the intrigue of Lolotea as a double agent for the Chiricahua Apache while acting as an interpreter and scout for the U.S. Army, and tells of tragic love story of the two main individuals with diverging cultures caught in the conflicting web between Native Americans protecting their families, land and customs against the noble directive of a young nation, Manifest Destiny. An international incident results from a border conflict when Sergeant Howcroft protects Chiricahua non-combatants being pursued by a Mexican Lancer Regiment.
