blackBlack History month gives us an opportunity to journey back and dwell on the impact of the Black experience on the current-day American experience. The “military experiment” of Blacks serving in the army is one of the better-known historical pivot points.

Warriors is chronologically the third in the five-book Jason Peares historical western series. This is a work of fiction, but the conflict between the (Black) Buffalo Soldiers of the Ninth Cavalry and the Apache warriors in the early 1880s was very real and well documented. This was not just a two-sided conflict, though, because there were political and economic factors regarding the business of war that heavily influenced the continuation and outcome of the conflict.

Jason Peares 3What I’ve tried to capture in this story are the thoughts and feelings of the characters on all sides of the conflict as they live through this adventure, to give you, the reader, a glimpse of what life and war were really like for the Apache warriors and the Buffalo Soldiers during their struggles to fight and survive. The characters are fictional, but they’re based on the journals of military officers and enlisted men who served during the frontier wars, and of politicians who influenced government strategy during that time period, as well as interviews with Apache survivors and offspring who lived and fought during the 1880s.
