“They came seeking gold and the fabled city of Cibola. When they reached the shores of the New World in Old Mexico, they were greeted with open arms by the Aztecs, Mayans and Incas, who considered them gods sent from above. The world they came to conquer knew no famine or disease before they arrived, but these natives soon found these gods were nothing more than mortal men who came to steal their lands and their lives.” --Ben Michaels

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Ben Michaels’s new book is a story of war and survival.

Geronimo, Cochise, and Eskiminzin are willing to die for their homeland. As Apaches, they will do anything to hold onto their native lands, even with their way of life fading fast in the turmoil of the Western expansion known as Manifest Destiny. At the same time, the Acuñas are caught in the middle as they continue their decades-long fight to save their land grant. Not only must they survive the harsh realities of the fickle desert climate, they must face the marauding bands of renegade Apaches and greedy Americans who covet their land for themselves.

“Apache Tears” is the clash of three cultures. It is a thrilling adventure about the survival of the fittest. The Spanish, Apache, and Anglo will be forced to endure and triumph over the terror of what appears to be an endless war. It is a war fueled by greed and a quest to take what others hold most dear. In the end, some will overcome the odds in the brutal and unforgiving beauty of the American Southwest while others will fall.
