In pre–Civil War Santa Fe, a young soldier faces Apache raiders, starvation, and more in "some of the best Western-writing to show up in a long time" (Chicago Tribune). In Andre Norton's action-filled story Stand to Horse, the tensions of men against men are balanced by the tensions of men against nature, often a cruel and unequal struggle. Throughout it all, the reader senses the nation's growing unrest as events lead up to the Civil War. Many of the incidents and much of the colorful dialogue are based on actual journals and diaries kept by men who lived through these perilous times. Stand to Horse is fiction of high order that re-creates a dangerous and exciting period in our country's history.
