On the first of February, 1896, Albert Fountain, prominent attorney, legislator, and tough leader of Indian and outlaw fighting militia, despite threats on his life and his eight year-old son Henry being with him, drove his wagon across the wild and lonely Tularosa basin of New Mexico. They were returning home after Albert’s two-week meeting with a grand jury to obtain indictments of ranchers for cattle theft.



Mariana Pérez de Ovante, Albert’s wife, believing no one attacked a man traveling with a little boy, had begged Albert to take Henry with him. When Albert finally acquiesced, she asked Henry to be her knight and protect his father. When Henry exuberantly agreed, she gave him a carved ivory horsehead pocket watch fob to remind him of her pride in his choice to be her knight and protect his father.



The historical facts are that on that windy, freezing day, the first of February 1896, Albert and Henry Fountain disappeared. Their bodies never found, their empty wagon miles out in the desert headed for the ranch of an enemy, their horses gone, and near where their wagon turned off the main road, a patch of blood-soaked sand glistened in the sunlight. Legends say Henry survived to avenge Albert’s murder, but only the wind and dead men know for sure.



Mariana’s Knight is gripping historical fiction, a fact-filled story, still debated today, of tragedy and revenge that carries the reader across a whirlwind of time, characters, and events in the desert southwest.

From the Back Cover:

CRITICAL ACCLAIM FOR W. MICHAEL FARMER
“In Killer of Witches, W. Michael Farmer brings history to life better than many historians. ...Rich with details of Apache life in the tumultuous nineteenth century, Killer of Witches subtly educates as it entertains.”
Anne Hillerman, New York Times best-selling author of Rock With Wings
“...More than well researched, Killer of Witches is dramatic and heart rending, yet could be true beyond our wildest imaginations...”
Lynda A. Sánchez, Author, Historian and Educator, Lincoln, New Mexico
