Two long short stories:- Behold the Faced Men and Missouri Moon Frontier America, when the Indians were still a terror and wagon trains crossed deserts under guard and settlements were evacuated because of outskirt massacres. Nebraska and a sort manned by volunteers and recruits is the setting for the first story, in which a ently reared girl proves her mettle when she comes to nurse her father, Captain of the sort. There Lieutenant Boyce saves her life and knows he loves her, but hesitates because he fears for his own sanity when the trauma of childhood terror seizes him. But circumstances and Myra's love provide their testing and their cure... In Missouri Moon he pull of white blood and a forgotten past prove strong enough to bring Sauk-adopted pley to winning Syria Dade from the civilization she had thought necessary to her.... good feel of true Indian and American frontier background material in readable adventure .
