Between Books 2 and 3 of the 12-volume Wes Crowley saga, there’s a 15-year gap. This is the sixth book that sets out to fill that gap. Hence, the Wes Crowley Gap Series.
This is also the second novel in the Wes Crowley Santa Fe sub-series. I don’t know how many stories will emerge from this diversion.
In this book, Wes accompanies Lew Wallace, the governor of the New Mexico Territory, over 200 miles on horseback from Amarillo to Santa Fe. Along the way they’ll pass through land dominated by the Comanche and the comancheros.
Will they encounter Comanches during the trip? Will they encounter Apaches in the Territory? What role will a Caddo Indian from northern Louisiana and a priest from a lonely Spanish mission on the Pecos River play in their exodus?
If you’ve ever dreamed of riding wild on a good horse in a just cause, this is the series for you. Lay up your saddlebags with provisions for a few days, then saddle up and come along!
