From the Spur Award-winning author of Summer of Pearls

When broken-hearted Honore Greenwood leaves New Orleans-and the woman he loves-to build a fort right in the heart of Comanche Country, he knows he has volunteered for a most dangerous project. With the Mexican War and the California Gold Rush bringing chaos across the plains, Honoree will have to work hard to earn the trust of the proud, powerful, and unpredictable Comanche people. But the vile whiskey trader Bill Snakehead Jackson is happy corrupting and breeding violence between the Comanches and their ancient enemies, the Apache. And when Honore's old love cries desperately for help, Honore will risk it all for the woman he loves.

MOON MEDICINE
ONEADOBE WALLS, TEXAS MARCH, 1927 
The ghosts of Charles and William Bent spoke to me last night. The spirit of Kit Carson came to me in the same vision. This was not a dream, but a vision. I know the difference.Kit said, "Come on, Plenty Man, I've marked the trail."William said, "It's alright, Kid."Charles added, "Better hurry, Mr. Greenwood, before you do something stupid and take the low road."As I woke, the echoes of their voices faded and became raindrops tapping the windowpane. The pale light of dawn illuminated my one-room sod house.
