Here, at last, is the compelling story of Lozen, known as the Apache Joan of Arc. When the US Army tries to drive the Chiricahua Apaches from their homeland, Lozen fights alongside Cochise, Geronimo, and Victorio in defense of her people. Gifted with the power of far-sight that allows her to see enemies miles away, she becomes an extraordinary shaman, warrior, horse thief, and healer. For over one hundred years the Apaches have kept her memory alive. A sensitive treatment of a little known Native American figure, Ghost Warrior is a rich and powerful frontier tale filled with unforgettable characters, the famous and the infamous.
The Chiricahua Apaches revered Lozen while she lived and they revere her still. One Apache described her as their patron saint. She is one of history’s most remarkable individuals. The human story is richer because it includes her life and her spirit.
