Book Description

Jan. 25 1999
The Chumash tribe dwelled in harmony with the land, worshiping their gods and spirits. In the 1880s the Spanish drove them from their homes, forcibly converted them to Christianity, and made them slaves under priests and military commanders.

A colonel in the Spanish army moves his wife and his daughter, Lucita, to the rough life of a Catholic mission in Alta California. On the journey to the mission, Lucita glimpses a half-naked Chumash warrior and is overwhelmed by the power of his gaze.

Black Wolf, once a captive of the priests, knows that the new garrison has come to hunt him down, for he gravely wounded one of the mission guards. He does not understand why he showed himself to the Spanish woman, but something about her draws him near.

Lucita's father demands that she marry a Spanish businessman. But at Black Wolf's side Lucita discovers that there is more than one kind of faith in the world, and that love can be a bridge uniting two very different hearts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Historical fiction at its' finest Feb. 17 1998
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
In 1809 Spanish-held California Territory, cultures clash between the Chumash Indians and the invading Spaniards. One of the Indian chiefs, Black Wolf, watches in abject horror as the Spanish, in the name of their God, force the People to give up their religion in order to worship Christianity. Even with their submission, the Spanish use the natives as cheap slave labor.
Even as he hates the Europeans, Black Wolf reluctantly finds himself attracted to Lucita Rodriguez, daughter of a vicious commandant. Lucita falls in love with the proud Indian leader. However, the Chumash have had enough and plan to revolt. It is up to Lucita and Black Wolf to find a way to stop the bloodshed yet find a place for the Chumas and Spanish cultures to thrive side by side. If they are successful against all odds, they can develop a permanent relationship of their own.
Vella Munn is one of the best writers of Native American historical romances on the market today. Her latest tale, WIND WARRIOR, is a fats-paced, action packed thriller that showcases two wonderful star-crossed lovers. Though the Spaniards seem more like caricatures without any redeeming qualities, Ms. Munn's brilliant homage to the lost culture of the Chumash makes this a fabulous historical romance.
