About this title


When two exiles find each other, the West will never be the same.

The first arrow should have killed the buffalo. But the massive bull keeps charging, and Lost Eyes watches, helpless, as the young warrior known as Waiting Horse is gored to death. As punishment for this tragic accident, Lost Eyes is exiled from his small Blackfoot tribe on the edge of the Elkhorn Creek - cursed to spend his days wandering the plains, forever remembering the hunt that changed his life.

Halfway around the globe, merchant captain Morgan Penmerry watches in horror as his ship burns in Macao harbor. Ruined, he attempts a daring return to the Americas to build his fortune anew. There he crosses paths with Lost Eyes - a fellow wanderer who, like the captain, understands the pains of banishment. Together, these unlikely partners will find a place in the frontier and form a bond that no tragedy can tear asunder.

From the Back Cover:

One man was an outcast among his people.
The other had found his home on the open seas.
They came from halfway around the world to meet.
And their journey had just begun...

In 1814, Lost Eyes is exiled by his small Blackfoot tribe, blamed for the death of a young hunter and doomed to a life of lonely wandering. Halfway around the world, in a harbor in the Portuguese colony of Macao, a seafaring Cornishman watches his own ship go up in flames against the night sky-and then must make a desperate voyage across the Pacific to America. There, Morgan Penmerry will meet a native Blackfoot being led by visions and by dreams. Both men know what it means to love a woman. Both men know what it means to have a mortal enemy-and to stand alone. Now, in a gathering storm of violence and hate, each will trust the other with his life and soul...

Scalpdancers is Kerry Newcomb's crowning achievement of adventure storytelling. From the high seas to the towering mountains of the American Northwest, this is an epic tale of two men, two cultures, and one vision becoming real-in a saga of honor, courage and blood ...
