  • "Hondo Lane was a man who'd come to terms with the hard land in which he lived. He rode dispatch for General Crook through the Arizona desert-a severe and beautiful landscape where one mistake could lead to a quick and lonely death. It was on the way to deliver an important message about an imminent Apache raid that he came upon an isolated ranch defended by a lone woman and her young son. But Angie Lowe wasn't just any woman. She was a fighter with as much grit and determination as any man. She, too, had carved out a place in this hard and beautiful land, and she wasn't about to leave it without making a stand-for her beliefs, for her son, and for the future."
  • "He was etched by the deserts howling winds, a big, broad-shouldered man who knew the ways of the Apache and the ways of staying alive. She was a woman alone raising a young son on a remote Arizona ranch. And between Hondo Lane and Angie Lowe was the warrior Vittoro, whose people were preparing to rise against the white men. Now the pioneer woman, the gunman, and the Apache warrior are caught in a drama of love, war, and honor. Hondo's heroism and the quiet nobility of Apache leader Vittorio come through in Strathairn's voice, reminding us how the West was won with blood, courage, and moral ambiguity."
