      This book dragged on forever without going anywhere. I really wanted to love this book and had been looking forward to reading it, but Lucia St. Clair Robson did not hold my attention with this one. I have loved all of her other books. This story about Lozen was so slow and never went anywhere. I kept waiting for something to happen and it never did. I just good not stick it out any longer, as I was forcing myself to read it; the characters just kept getting all mixed up. I finally had to give i [...]

      Ms. Robson is a skilled writer. She makes the reader part of the setting, and one lives in the time in which the story takes place. She illustrates the tragedy of the Apache nation as a people are ground under the heel of the encroaching settlers. In Lozen, she brings alive a little-known historical figure. This woman's books never disappoint.

      I love reading Lucia St. Clair Robson books. She has the ability to transform me to that place and time so easily. While she writes fiction, it is obvious that she has done her homework. This story teaches us of a Native American woman who actually existed and was considered by her people to be a Shaman and leader during the last days before their freedom is stolen. Lozen is her name. She helped to hide her people from the US Army for many years. Lozen was considered a horse whisperer, stealing [...]

      It's hard for me to write this review because I know what an amazing accomplishment it is to write a book and Lucia St. Clair Robson is one of my favorite authors. Ride the Wind is one of my favorite books of all time. Sometimes reality is more interesting than fiction and that is the case with all the historical characters Lucia St. Clair Robson writes about. These people's livesey are epic and crazy and just utterly amazing. And real. These people really existed and did these things in a time [...]

      This book, around 500 pages, (I read the hardbound version) took my more than a week to read. This week was spent savoring a tale crafted by a master. Robson has done her research well. The story is about the Apache Wars in New Mexico and Arizona during the 1850's-1880's. First, Robson immerses us deeply into Apache folklore and culture. We learn more about why they had so many names and where some of the names like "Victorio" came from. We already know that the Native Americans revered the land [...]

    7. Joyce on said:

      Robson writes a well researched novel about Lozen, known as the Apache Joan of Arc. Lozen didn't marry, she lived as a spiritual leader, healer and a warrior as she fought for decades with her brother Victorio to maintain their lands. For anyone sweltering in the dessert heat in 2012, imagine what it was like for the Native Americans who lived there before air conditioning, supermarkets, and cars. Robson shows how they lived, their love of laughter, their ribald joking, their love of stealing, a [...]

      Although I finished this book awhile back, I never returned to to tell you my final impressions on St.Clair Robson's book, Ghost Warrior. This was a riveting book in all respects. The characters were rich and multifaceted; the plot made sense and had motivation and rationale. The setting is, of course, one of my favorite - the southwest during the Native American "holocaust" perpetrated by white settlers and soldiers, and initiated by the federal government. These were characters and events tha [...]

    9. Ash on said:

      Defying Apache tradition, Lozen declines marriage offers to train as a warrior and shaman. She is her brother's right hand throughout his leadership and is a respected member of councils even after his death. From her girlhood on her people's land in New Mexico to her death at a reservation in the swamps of Florida, it's continual atrocity (on both sides) between the indigenous tribes (stealing) and the US government/business interests/settlers (lying) [widespread brutal murder], with a brief re [...]

      Ghost Warrior took me into the early southwest with ease! I enjoyed jumping from bands of natives to bands of whites, floating along the story with anticipation. But, the title of the book is indeed ghost warrior and the author fell far short in depicting the miraculous mysterious life of a native medicine woman. I am sure that Lozen had far more power dreams that lead her thru her own self discovery as well as give her the ability to lead her people. I love the mystery of the native shamans and [...]

    11. Felicia on said:

      Lozen, the Ghost Warrior, completely eluded me. I eagerly began this book, wanting to learn more about the Apache of the Southwest. I did learn about their brutal lifestyle, their wars with Mexico and the United States Army.every chapter was a new battle, another slaughter.Lozen was an unusual rider, a woman with visions and great spirit; but as I waited for her life to evolve; I couldn't wait for the book to end. Each foray, each powwow became like the last. eternal "groundhog day".I was very d [...]

      Several years ago I read two books by Lucia St. Clair Robson and loved them. The first was "Ride the Wind" and for the life of me I don't remember the name of the other. BUTI thoroughly enjoyed them. If you want a feel for what life was like during the settling of the West, this book is an excellent read. It is told from the perspective of an Apache female and an Anglo man. Their lives intersect throughout the book. This gives you the perspective of an Apache whose lands were being gradually tak [...]

    13. Bea on said:

      I didn't like this book as much as I like St. Clair Robson's other books. Although Lozen's life was fascinating and she describes the scenery and action well I didn't connect to the main characters as much. She tried to set up a love story and that didn't really work for me. I wanted more Lozen and less Rafe!

    14. Gloria Esquerra on said:

      This is the story of Lozen, the beloved sister of Apache Chief Victorio. A beautiful, valiant warrior and revered shaman who fought alongside Cochise, Geronimo, and her brother. Apaches have kept the memory of their hero Lozen alive to this day.

    15. Carolyn on said:

      I am not much for Westerns. But this one had me. With it's strong female lead. IF in fact this incredible lady relative of Geronimo did all of this, I bow to her and the great writer Robson who gave her rebirth in these pages. Wow!

    16. T. Jackson on said:

      One of my all time favorites. Read it about a dozen or more times.

    17. Sue on said:

      Incoherent because of all the strange, long-winded names. Kept tripping over all these names. Can't even get to the story; shame.

    18. Shawn Buck on said:

      So far , its very good , but I wished there was more story about Lozen the woman worrier than rafe Collins , I think i will research Rafe Collins and see what his real story is in all this Fiction
