Newly orphaned 17-year-old Ned Giles leaves Chicago to join the 1932 Great Apache Expedition, a search for a young boy who was kidnapped by Apaches. Narrator Chris Baskous creates a disparate cast of characters with a myriad of accents. This historical novel guides readers through a dark period in American history, replete with heartbreaking prejudice and breath-snatching violence. Listeners who sign on for the journey across the desert Southwest will find themselves swept up in the challenges faced by these unforgettable characters. This is one of those instances when the audiobook version is more affecting than listening to the voices in your head, so vivid are the characterizations. R.O.
