Publishers Description Cliff has been an attorney in Arizona for 35 years. He has served as an attorney for several communities in Arizona and has served as an elected member to a school board. During the Vietnam War, he served briefly in the U.S. Naval Reserves. He spent his formative years as a boy in New Mexico where he developed a love for the outdoors and small town life. His wife is an Arizona native. This book arose out of his great appreciation for the wonderful history of Arizona.

Jake Chandler is a boy of 17 when he and his Ma and Pa join a small wagon train headed for the Arizona Territory. Terrible, heart-breaking circumstances force Jake to spend a long winter living alone in a cave in the Chiricahua Mountains, hiding from the Apaches. In the spring, he finds Fort Bowie and as he is leaving to return to his mountain valley, a young prostitute named Becca comes running out to him, screaming for help from men who are beating her. In the days and weeks that follow, Jake tries to explain his faith in Christ to Becca, but stumbles badly in the effort. Becca has never heard of Christ, and if she is to believe, she must struggle through an overwhelming sense of inferiority, guilt and shame, then find Jake as she runs for her life from Big Kate, who wants her dead.

wonderful story Jan 28, 2009
For a first novel, this is a wonderful story. Hard to put down after beginning and heartwarming from the start. I strongly recommend.
Can't put it down until you know the ending. Dec 2, 2008
This is one of the most intriguing books I have read for a long time. It catches you in the first couple chapters and your attention is held until the end.
It has a wonderful insight into the Southern Arizona terrain and beauty as well as the history of the area.
It also has a weaving story of relationships and understanding of people who are different.
I am looking forward to a sequel!!!
Captivating Jun 21, 2008
This story about love, grace and forgiveness was captivating. I read it in a few days time and couldn't put it down. I found myself lost in the growth of the characters and their changed lives. The history of the Chiricuahuas is fascinating and the story and details are believable. I usually enjoy science fiction stories, but this fiction novel had me hooked from the first chapter. I highly recommend this fantastic story!
