In this newest of Richard Wheeler's Barnaby Skye chronicles, the earthy deserter from the Royal Navy, now a trapper, guide, and magnet for adventure, collects his Crow Indian wife Many Quills Woman (or "Victoria" as he calls her) and drifts south to Mexican territory

At Bent's Fort on the Mexican frontier, Skye agrees to help Standing
Alone, a mysterious Cheyenne woman, locate her two children who were
kidnapped by Ute Indians several years before and sold into bondage in
Mexico.

This impossible, dangerous, and foolhardy mission takes the three to Santa Fe and Taos and into a strange association with an eccentric Texas adventurer, Colonel Childress, who agrees to help them for reasons no one can guess.

Deliverance is the 13th in a series of early American West frontier
novels featuring Barnaby Skye, the most beloved and enduring character in
modern Western fiction.

Book Excerpts

Read an Excerpt

Deliverance
oneWith the quickening of the grass, the Cheyenne woman came once again to Bent's Fort. Barnaby Skye saw her from a great distance, a small, blue-blanketed woman crouched in her usual spot just outside the massive gate where she could watch every mortal who entered or left. He knew her sad story; everyone in the post did.He had been out hunting, along with his Crow wife he had named Victoria, and now they were returning at sundown with a groaning wagonload of buffalo meat, butchered and wrapped in the hide against the year's first green flies.
