Yaqui, the chief of a once-mighty Yaqui tribe, is desperate to protect his people. Men from the East have ravaged his land for gold, provoking war and driving the Yaquis deep into an unknown wilderness. Just when Yaqui believes that his people are safe, hidden away in a fertile valley where they begin to prosper, his tribe is viciously attacked by Mexican soldiers and taken away as slaves. But Yaqui’s strong body and resilient spirit cannot be broken by his years of bondage. Though he sees his people waste away, suffer, and die, he watches and waits for his opportunity for revenge.

Zane Grey

Born Pearl Zane Gray in Zanesville, OH, Zane Grey is noted for his careful research and accurate portrayal of the American West. Though Grey trained as a dentist, he turned to writing as a career in 1904, when his first book was published. Grey went on to write more than 50 novels, most of them tales of adventure with a Western setting, including The Last of the Plainsmen (1908), Riders of the Purple Sage (1912), The Thundering Herd (1925), Code of the West (1934), and West of the Pecos (1937). His nonfiction works include Tales of Fishing (1925). Many of Grey’s novels continue to be extremely popular, and several have been adapted into motion pictures.
