Product Description


"Wilson is a self-confessed history addict, and his enthusiasm for creating believable stories about the past, as well as his attention to detail, has been obvious throughout the series. Victorio's War seems more realistic and authentic than many other novels about this time period, and it keeps the setting lively and entertaining for the (mostly) boys who will fall in love with the idea of a teenager on a momentous adventure. " (CM Magazine 2012-04-27)

"This easy read has a fast moving plot and complex characters making it perfect for reluctant readers, as well as fans of historical fiction and westerns...The themes of right and wrong, discussion of death, and the message of hope will be engaging and rewarding." (VOYA 2012-08-01)

"This third volume of John Wilson's Desert Legends trilogy is every bit as well done as the first two...Wilson's seeming asides and occasional real historical references merely entice the reader to look further and more closely at what is presented before him...[A] well-paced tale." (Resource Links 2012-06-01)

"Wilson is skilled at bestowing upon [his characters] grand, memorable gestures. This is a fine time dodging arrows along the sunbaked trail." (Booklist 2012-08-01)

"Readers will smell the dust, hear the whizzing bullets and arrows, and experience the conflicted loyalties that are all part of Jim's story...An outstanding fast-paced tour of the Old West that will appeal to all ages." (Tri State YA Book Review Committee 2012-09-01)

From the Back Cover

Victorio nods, "And what will you pay for this boy's life?" "Pay?" I ask in confusion. "Would you pay your life for his?" "I…I don't know," I stammer. "Then you must decide, Busca. Ghost Moon wishes to kill the child, and you wish to spare him. Are you prepared to fight to save him?" Now a scout for the army, Jim Doolen feels trapped between the two worlds he's encountered during his three-year sojourn in the American south-west. Captured by his nemesis Ghost Moon and his band of Apache warriors, Jim is only saved from a slow and torturous death when his friend Wellington adopts him as his son. But now he's fighting on the wrong side. Will he be branded a traitor? Or killed in a battle with the 10th US Cavalry or the Mexican Army? As supplies and ammunition run out, Jim's fate is tied to that of the Apaches. Survival-his and theirs-seems unlikely.

HASH(0x9dc6af00) out of 5 stars It was ok June 11 2012
By Emily - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book was really slow. The descriptions were very vivid, but almost to the point where they were too much. The story was ok, but it found myself uninterested in most of it. I did find four pages close to the middle of the book that were simply brilliant (during a time when the main character is talking to the Indians). However, I felt that the author could have spent a little more time on character development as it took me forever to figure out whether Wellington was an Indian.
