Seminal works on the tribes of the South West by one of its earliest authorities
The author of this book is a well known and highly regarded author on the history of the American south-west during the 19th century. His works-On the Border with Crook and An Apache Campaign in the Sierra Madre (both published by Leonaur)-concerning the wars fought by the United States Army against the Apache Indian tribes, and based on his experiences whilst a serving cavalry officer on General Crook's staff, are rightly considered classics of the subject. Those who know anything about the author know that Bourke not only fought the Apache and served with Apache scouts but also developed an abiding affection for them as a people and an interest in the culture and customs of the indigenous Indian tribes of the region in general. This resulted in the writing of several small works of ethnography which have been gathered together in this special Leonaur edition-possibly for the first time.
