Hombrecito’s War is the first 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 eight year-old Henry Fountain who disappeared broken and bleeding into the New Mexico winter desert after the murder of his father.
