Red River Stage
Western StoriesLarge Print - 2002
Fred Grove's Indian heritage and lifelong love of horses bring a unique point of view and authenticity to his stories. Two of his five Spur Awards were for short stories included in this volume of twelve. "Comanche Woman" is the story of Emily Bragg, a white woman who has been a captive of the Comanches for so long that she is forgetting how to speak English. When a Comanchero arrives to ransom her, Emily is not sure she wants to leave. "When the Caballos Came" recounts the Penateka Comanches' discovery of the marvelous creatures ridden by the invading Spaniards. And in the title story, a fugitive on a stage bound for Indian territory finds his fellow passenger is a U.S. marshal. Book jacket.
