THE ULTIMATE TEST

Thunder Moon was born white. But as a boy he was captured by a mighty Cheyenne brave who needed a son, and was raised in the ways of his father's tribe. As Thunder Moon grew, he learned Cheyenne culture and sought honor through warfare and hunting to overcome the stigma of his light skin. Yet there were some traditions Thunder Moon could not accept. One of these was the self-torture of the Sun Dance, the major rite of passage to adulthood for braves. He had to find another way to prove himself worthy in the eyes of his adopted people. His chance came in a test so daring, so courageous, that no man could doubt his manhood. Thunder Moon would lead a raid against the Cheyenne's fiercest enemies, the scourge of the Plains—the Comanches!

About the Author:

Max Brand's action-filled stories of adventure and heroism in the American West continue to entertain readers throughout the world. Brand penned over 200 full-length Westerns in his career, including Destry Rides Again and Montana Rides. Several of his novels are available from Brilliance Audio.

From Publishers Weekly:

Originally published in 1927-28, this is the first of four novelettes in Brand's Thunder Moon series. Brand (1892-1944), a pseudonym of Frederick Faust, captures the spirit and pride of the Cheyenne Indians on the Great Plains in this story of a young white captive's growth to manhood as a Cheyenne warrior. Big Hard Face is an honorable, respected Cheyenne warrior. His three marriages have produced no son, however. Alone, he travels on a perilous journey to the white man's villages, where he kidnaps a white male infant, whom he names Thunder Moon. As the years pass, the boy brings both joy and sorrow to Big Hard Face. Thunder Moon has difficulty accepting some Cheyenne rituals, but he rides on dangerous raids against his tribe's enemies to prove himself worthy of his father's respect and to seek his own place as a Cheyenne warrior. Brand's mastery of the genre is still evident in this artfully crafted story.
