Cheyenne, Wyo. (PRWEB) March 13, 2008
Arizona War, Melody Groves' riveting novel of warring Apaches, the 1861 Confederate invasion of the Southwest and three brothers caught in the middle, is now available in bookstores and through the University of New Mexico Press' Web site at http://www.unmpress.com, announced Mike Harris, publisher for La Frontera Publishing (http://www.lafronterapublishing.com).
Set in Arizona Territory at the start of the Civil War, the Colton brothers--James, Trace, and now Andy--must face not only an Apache uprising and invading Texans, but their own personal demons. Driven to near madness by Apache brutality, nearly killing the sheriff, James chooses joining the Union Army over prison. Andy, the youngest brother, also joins, but only to keep James out of trouble. Trace, the oldest Colton, finds himself imprisoned by a sadistic Confederate officer and left alone to die.
In the end, it's all up to James to save Union troops from Apache attack--if he can summon the courage to face his old torturers and their leader, Cochise.
"Melody Groves writes about the Southwestern frontier with real authority; a scholar's grasp of history, a keen sense of the land, and a well-honed edge for action that'll get your blood boiling. Historical fiction at its best," said Johnny Boggs, author of 30 books including his latest, Northfield.
"This is the third book in Melody Groves' gripping series about the Southwest frontier during the 1860s," said Harris. "'Arizona War, a Colton Brothers Saga, No. 3,' is historical fiction at its best, and we at La Frontera Publishing are pleased to bring her novels to fans of the American West."
