First they had to return to the decimated ranch, bury the bodies of their family, and confront the evil cunning of the Comanche who had slaughtered them. Then they set out in pursuit of missing Lucy Henry. In the years that follow, Amos and Henry survive storms of nature and of men, seeking more than a missing girl, and more than revenge. Both are driven by secrets, guilt, love, and rage. Defying the dangers all around them, two men become frontier legends, searching for the one moment, and the one last battle that will finally set them free...Hide synopsis
Taut, gritty western that explores the issues of white-Native American differences and the practice of captive taking by Native Americans. The characters are well defined and the action is exciting. There are differences from the film, some minor, some major, that I won't divulge. I recommend reading it to anyone interested in good western fiction.
