Yuma Kid

Yuma Kid

Young Yuma Kid, rescued by the Yuma Indians in the Gila desert during a sandstorm, grows up amongst them (they call him Wind of Death), and after hearing the prophecy of the old witch Wa-No-Tah who lives in a cave together with her cougars (a recurrent theme for G. L. Bonelli, the script-writer in this series), he returns to the world of white men; the whites immediately learn to respect him, partly because of the aura of mystery that surrounds his birth and his life with the Indians. Although this series lasted barely eighteen weekly albums, it was noted for the splendid and crystal-clear drawings by Mario Uggeri.
