Western Short Story: "Black smoke drew Rolla's eye, smoke where there should not be smoke. Then he heard the noise: high, piercing yips, and a woman's scream, and the flat report of gunshots." With revenge in his heart, young Rolla takes part in the Battle of Salt River Canyon at Skeleton Cave in Arizona Territory.
The battle that took place on December 28, 1872, was an engagement of the decade-long Apache Wars in the late nineteenth century. Award winning writer Marsha Ward envisions how young Rolla forged an alliance with another settler and became involved in that fight.
