The Last Warrior, The Life and Times of Yellow Boy, Mescalero Apache, Book 3, continues the powerful story of the Mescalero Apaches fighting for tribal survival against determined ignorance from autocratic government overseers, countering attacks from those misusing their supernatural powers, and choosing sides in White Eye conflicts. Yellow Boy, the last warrior, stands in the turmoil helping to save his tribal culture, destroying a witch seeking blood vengeance, and bringing justice to an American crime. It is truth told with fiction that transports the reader to different times and places, cultures and religions, histories and backgrounds disappearing with the passing of the old Apaches, the other side of Apache history lived by a people who survived the battle for their life-ways.
