"Boggs's narrative voice captures the old- fashioned style of the past and reminds a reader of the derring-do of western legends of yesteryear." -- Publishers Weekly.

"Boggs is among the best western writers at work today." -- Booklist.

On September 15, 1881, a general court-martial was convened at Fort Davis, Texas, to try Second Lieutenant H. O. Flipper, an officer in the 10th Cavalry of the U.S. Army, with charges of embezzlement and conduct unbefitting an officer. Flipper was a former slave, and the only black man to graduate from West Point. He had always conducted himself with honor as an officer and a gentleman. Army attorney Captain Merrit Barber, believes that the charges brought against Lt. Flipper are nothing but a conspiracy on the part of a small group of officers whose purpose is to remove from their midst the only black officer in the U.S. Army.

Johnny D. Boggs, winner of the most prestigious awards in Western fiction, has written more than 25 books, and is considered one of the top writers of frontier fiction today.
