Nestled between Montana's Bitterroot Range, and the Sapphire Mountains, lies a verdant lowland. Fort Owen, a small military fort established in this Bitterroot Valley is home to a troop of cavalry soldiers and their families, where in 1849, Captain Paul Thompson, is issued corrupt orders from the evil Major Carl Thornton. These orders, to exterminate an entire tribe of Indians, are destined to change Captain Thompson's life forever. Being a man of impeccable honor, the absurdity of the orders goes against every principle the captain stands for. Faced with this terrible decision, he must decide whether he will obey his superior's orders or risk his military career--and even his life--if he refuses. John Whipple, a very special young hero, witnesses a heinous crime and while riding to report it, runs into the culprits themselves. Being full of integrity, and the sense of right and wrong, he fights injustice in the face of adversity. Nataka Hansen, a half-breed Indian scout, shows courage in carrying out orders to delay Thornton and his men. He learns the value of honor and justice, as he meets this hostile situation. Sergeant Daniel Peters learns the power of love through compassionate service. This man becomes a giant among men, not only endearing him to the characters, but to the readers as well. Major Thornton's wife Anna, is forced to face much pain and heartache, while in sharp contrast, Colonel Jedidiah Williams and his wife JaNae are able to steal a tender moment of time together. Captain Paul Thompson and his wife Kate share tender feelings of love and closeness when reunited after a long separation. This Western adventure will tantalize and keep you enthralled. You will find it hard to put this novel down as you discover the next interesting dilemma and outcome. There are many valuable lessons to be learned as you witness the resultant growth of each character and you will come away feeling enriched and uplifted by the love, honor and justice that ultimately prevail.

Having visited Montana for years from her nearby home in Idaho, Mabel G. Ebner has developed love and reverence for its scenic beauty and wildlife. She has expressed these feeling through her multiple talents and creativity. One can appreciate this in her acrylic paintings of waterfalls and moose, mountains and elk. Self-educated in creative writing and poetry, she has demonstrated a love of playing with words and of painting pictures with them. To read her descriptions in this book, one is able to visualize the swirling, boiling rapids, but can also hear the rushing water, smell the nearby pines, feel the cool breezes, and taste the delicious food cooked in the campfire. This is Mabel's first novel, but not her first publication. She published a book of poetry entitled Reflections of the Soul. Her poem "Grandeur" was included in Of Diamonds and Rust, an international poetry publication. Her poem "Silent Killer" (about cancer) was published first on the Internet at www.poetry.com; she then received a certificate for Editor's Choice, and the poem was published in Poet's Elite 2000. Mabel has also written stories for adults and children, songs and play, and other poems not yet published. Mabel has drawn upon real life experiences as she portrays the characters, the drama, and the emotions accompanying each story in this novel. She attributes her talent and inspiration as coming from her Heavenly Father. She and her husband, Maurice, have one daughter and have recently become grandparents. She has sometimes paused during health challenges, but "quit" is not in her vocabulary. She already has in mind two sequel novels.
