DON COLDSMITH, voted one of the greatest western writers of the twentieth century by the Western Writers of America, single-handedly revolutionized the Western novel with his acclaimed Spanish Bit Saga. Set in the early sixteenth century, the Spanish Bit re-creates a time, a place, and a people that have been nearly lost to history. In it we see history through the eyes of those who lived it.

Owl's father changed the lives of the People by bringing the horse from his native Spain. Now Owl must make his own contribution by learning the way of the buffalo from an ancient medicine man and pursuing a vision quest. Embarking on a perilous journey through savage lands, Owl risks capture by the People's enemies, and wins the heart of a brave and beautiful woman, before winning honor among the People.
