Dear Colby, Well, here I am reading & commenting on your 2nd book :) - it is still set in Arizona & here, Yee Naaldyooshi the witch doctor is trying to take control & seek revenge, when the Spanish fight to colonize the natives, soldiers slaughtering unarmed Navajo women, children & elders & Antonio Narbona seeks peace treaties with the Spanish & the United States governments, as your pitch portrays. :) WOW!!! What a read!! Wonderful that the Spanish soldiers helped Narbonoa to protect his clan at the end of chapter 8. :) My eyes well up with tears, the tragedy of innocent people all of over the world, still ;( - may God have mercy. :) I will now go to your 3rd book to read & comment. :) Love, Susie :)

Hi Colby,
Was able to look over your first chapter before bed. Let me start with a nit (before the praise): Your first sentence is quite long; and, I think, needlessly so. How 'bout . . .red rock towers and plateaus. Here were the valleys of . . . Just a thought. Good beginnings are singularly crucial. The rest flowed well, was colorful and interesting and paced well. Good job.
