Besting the boys of her tribe at every turn-running, wrestling and other contests-a young Apache girl is given the choice for warrior training. Strong and resourceful, Lozen's mysterious Power of the Blue Hands catapults her into a role of leadership. When the Mexicans and White Eyes invade her homeland, she is challenged to interpret that power. Great chiefs come to rely on her tactics and strategy, and in her dual role as fierce fighter and healer, she soon becomes the most revered woman in all of the Apache Nations. Wisdom and her connection to the natural world and Great Spirit, guide her on her path. Along the way, a lone warrior, Gray Wolf, visits her village and Lozen marks him as hers. But can she help the man who carries her love in the rivers of his heart? And will she be strong enough to lead her people against the new dangers they face? The wilderness is savage-but even more so is man.
Stan Gordon lives with his wife Linda, in Tucson, Arizona.

"Moon in the Water is a powerful tale of a tribe of Indians that are moved to and fro from reservations and prisons. When they escape to find food for their starving families, they are hunted and become wanted with high awards for their scalps. This gripping tale is poignant in it's accuracy in depicting life for Native American's in the mid 1800's. Unspeakable and horrendous acts were committed on both sides. Greed of the land and revenge of these acts were the driving forces that kept these two people from living peacefully. Kudos to author Stan Gordon for his portrayal of Lozen and her people. Moon in the Water is Lozen's story from her birth to her death and Mr. Gordon captures her spirit and brings her to life for the reader. Her heartaches are many and this reviewer cried when she cried. Her triumphs will cause the reader celebrate with her. Lozen is a heart-warming character that the reader will soon learn to love."
"Moon in the Water is sad at times, frustrating at times, and will keep the reader thoroughly engrossed. A must read for American History Fiction lovers. And highly recommended for all readers who like to read of a young girl who grows into a strong, capable, and intelligent woman."

"Well-written and well researched, MOON IN THE WATER shows the struggle of the Apache in a white man's world. It takes Lozen from a child to a warrior and a woman, as she learns the ways of her people. It is evident that Mr. Gordon took a lot of time to research the life of the Apache during this time. His description of the rituals and battles are very vivid. It is a story rich with the history of the Native American and their struggle for survival against the Mexican and White people. Readers who like well detailed history will enjoy MOON IN THE WATER"

"MOON IN THE WATER is a gender bending historical fictionalized account of a real Indian while focusing on the lifestyle of a southwest Apache tribe struggling to survive against outside intrusion. Lozen keeps the story line focused as the star who defies sexual barriers to become a warrior and leader. Using the story of Lozen as an underlying basis to his fascinating story line, Stan Gordon provides a deep look at Apache customs at a time when the tribe was in peril from the outside encroachment."
