Once again Hal McBride has displayed his great skill at painstakingly weaving threads of fiction into the vast fabric of historical facts. Gatewood journeys through the closing years of the Apache Wars against the unforgiving backdrop of the Arizona and New Mexico Territories (1878-1890). The great love affair of Charles and Georgia Gatewood intertwines its way throughout the story. The story takes the reader on Charles Gatewood and his Coyotero Apache scouts' pursuits of Nana and Victorio, finally leading to Gatewood's securing the surrender of Geronimo deep in the Mexican wilderness. From a wife frightened by the sight of a mouse to a woman who can crown a coyote with an iron skillet and still prepare a meal. The story traces Gatewood's evolution to an advocate of Indian Rights on the White Mountain Indian Reservation.
