In Killer of Witches: The Life and Times of Yellow Boy, Mescalero Apache author W. Michael Farmer describes the plight of the Mescalero Apaches of the 1860s as experienced by a boy whose people escape cruel imprisonment at the Bosque Redondo reservation. Their village is later decimated by Sangre del Diablo, a terrifying attacker whose head is painted to resemble a skull. In a dream, the young warrior, Yellow Boy, is gifted with the power to kill Diablo, known as “the Witch.” Yellow Boy encounters wavering allegiances and outright betrayals by both white men and his native brothers as he pursues the Witch across picturesque rugged lands to avenge his people. History and details of Mescalero Apache culture are expertly woven into this
absorbing tale.
