McComas and his family were attacked by Apaches on a desolate road in New Mexico Territory. The judge and his wife were killed, and their six-year-old son, Charles, was kidnapped. Although Americas reaction to the attack was intense and the search for the missing child as highly publicized as the later Lindbergh kidnapping, little was known or understood at the time about why or how the tragedy had occurred.

Marc Simmons sheds the first light on the McComas familys fatal path and gives the first complete picture of circumstances surrounding this tragic event. From long-buried fragments, Simmons reconstructs the events of that fateful day, as well as the U.S. Armys first legal hot pursuit of an Apache raiding party into Mexico that followed. The puzzle of why a reputably wise and able man would lead his family into such a fatal predicament and the ironic circumstance of young Charles McComass death at the hands of U.S. troops illustrate that past events were as complex and sometimes as confusing as those today.
