From the Inside Flap
Two men. One woman. A land that demanded courage--or death...
He was a man etched by the desert's howling winds, a big, broad-shouldered man who knew the ways of the Apache and ways of staying alive. She was a woman raising a young son on her own on a remote Arizona ranch. And between Hondo Lane and Angie Lowe was the warrior Vittoro, whose people were preparing to rise against the white men. Now the pioneer woman, the gunman, and the Apache warrior are caught in a drama of love, war, and honor. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

This is a western romance, in both senses of the word "romance". Characterisation is not the author's forte. Hondo Lane is idealised beyond credibility as is Vittoro, the Apache chief and even the dog, Sam. Other characters are at best stereotypes. Sentimentality is never kept far at bay and the final section of the novel dives feet first into a gush of unconvincing emotion. If we wince at this, against it is set the disciplined, informed descriptions of fauna, flora and climatic conditions. Here the writing is often very fine. We also have a fast-moving plot, together with plenty of tension and action. When all is said and done, it is a cracking good story and that is what L'Amour wanted to give us more than anything else.
