Hombrecito’s Search is the second volume in a trilogy of historical fiction novels developed around true events in the southwest as the generation that settled in New Mexico, beginning about 1880, began their lives in a hard and hostile land and lived until the mid-twentieth century. This novel is the story of Henry Fountain’s coming of age while living with the Sierra Madre Apaches, and learning wisdom as he seeks to avenge his murdered father.
