- 2016 INDIES Finalist
- Finalist, Historical (Adult Fiction)
At the height of frontier expansion, Josh Frasier comes West--a missionary to Cheyenne Indians. He marries into the tribe then is recruited as chaplain in the Colorado militia to fight on the edges of the Civil War and deal with the 'Indian problem.' This well-crafted story weaves both historical and fictional characters in a fast-paced balance of heart-wrenching tragedy and universal themes: In a clash of cultures, where will ambition, fear, and violence lead? And is healing even possible?
