The story of four freinds in the Civil War in New Mexico and Arizona shortly thereafter.


    In the early days of the Civil War, when things were going mostly for the South, the Confederacy planned to extend its empire to California, taking advantage of the Pacific ports and vast goldfields. But first, they had to secure the New Mexico Territory.
    For Mace Alexander and his friends, the Civil War was just the beginning. Through the crucible of war, they would become brothers… though not all would survive. In the broiling heat of the desert, and across sun-swept mountains, they would become frontiersmen.
    As Mace would try to put the horrors of the War behind him, he found new ones to deal with as he fought in the Arizona Apache wars, determined to make the land safe for its stalwart settlers. Nothing could have prepared him for the unbelievable ferocity suffered by the victims.
     In the midst of this harsh land, with harsher men, Mace found an oasis of peace and beauty in the love of Angelina, the only daughter of Don Miguel, the region’s most powerful Ranchero owner. Could their love prevail over cultural clashes with the Spanish aristocracy, not mention the ever present threat of hostile Indians?
    Through love and war, with loss and survival, Mace learns that life changes everything and everyone. It’s always pushing forth new horizons. If you don’t keep up with it, you’ll be left behind, swept away. In order to survive, you have to face… and embrace theses changes.
     Driven by revenge, and bound together with loyalty and love, Mace and his band of brothers would face the ultimate challenge to their lives, and to their very souls. For the deadliest, most ruthless enemy of all awaited them… the Apache Snake Dancers! Their unholy sacrifices and blood crazed ferocity threatened to drive out the struggling white man forever. In the inevitable clash to come, there could be only one victor… one survivor. Only one to see… beyond the horizons.
