An Apache princess

“Under the willows at the edge of the pool a young girl sat daydreaming, though the day was nearly done.

There is something about a night alarm of fire at a military post that borders on the thrilling. In the days whereof we write the buildings were not the substantial creations of brick and stone to be seen to-day, and those of the scattered ‘camps’ and stations in that arid, sun-scorched land of Arizona were tinder boxes of the flimsiest and most inflammable kind.”

In the midst of the wild west, an army post, the Apache, scouts, soldiers, and fighting, a love story will also unfold.
