The wild mustangs of Wyoming inspired John Bradford Branney to write his sixth book, WHEN LEAVES CHANGE COLOR, a story based on the introduction of horses to the Plains Indians of Wyoming in the late 17th Century. LEAVES begins with a vivid description of a violent attack, part of the 1680 Pueblo Revolt on a sprawling Spanish family ranch, out of which spins intricate bifurcated sub-plots emanating from separate hostile Indian massacres. Two sub-plots or themes are masterfully and skillfully coiled and twined and twisted like a Southwestern Indian basket. The reader is led through the maturation of the Spanish rancher’s son in his quest to be reunited with his younger brother. A parallel journey takes the reader along with a young coming-of-age warrior-to-be searching for the captured young Indian woman he loves--a journey on which he discovers a miraculous gift that changes the future of his tribe. That discovery takes a most unpredictable twist in completing the selvage of the basket that becomes this captivating story.
