I was in my fourteenth summer when the Mexicans rode against us. Twelve moons later, I took my revenge.
And thought Ussen has drawn visions of a terrible future in my mind, I will not be vanquished. I belong to this land: to the wide sky above my head, to the sweet grass beneath my feet. Here must I die.
But first I will live, and I will fight. For I am a warrior. I am Apache.
Siki is an orphan of the Black Mountain Apache. Her mother was killed by Mexicans three years ago and her father lost in an ambush the winter before that. When Siki witnesses the brutal murder of her little brother Tazhi, she vows to become an Apache warrior and avenge her brother's death.
