"Meandering through the great Southwest, the waters of the Gila River flowed gently through the parched Sonoran Desert, while along its banks conflict raged between Pima farmers and their fierce Apache neighbors. Then came the Spaniards, lured by tales of Gold, and on their heels the brash Americans. As hostile peoples vied for control, brave individuals struggled to find their destiny in a harsh and unforgiving land: Miguel Santana, a young Spaniard abandoned by his comrades; his Pima son, Vitorio; Jacova, a woman whose indominable spirit tamed a mighty Apache warrior; and the "man of three bloods," belonging to all--and to none. On the banks of the Gila their lives came together--in love and in war--as the great river carried them toward an uncertain future."
