A great conclusion to an interesting series

Admittedly, when I started the series I wasn't really sure what I was getting myself into. I've never read novels that weave in snippets of historical events, no less from the more undertold side of the story. W. Michael and Kathleen O'Neal Gear do a respectful job and create and entertaining and interesting story that compelled me to complete the series. I strongly recommend the series for those who have both an intellectual curiosity about Native American history and who enjoy a good entertaining story that is definitely fiction, but brings up some interesting thoughts about Desoto's losses in the US when he was so victorious in Mexico.
