Overview

A masterful reconstruction of one of the worst Indian massacres in American history

In April 1871, a group of Americans, Mexicans, and Tohono O?odham Indians surrounded an Apache village at dawn and murdered nearly 150 men, women, and children in their sleep. In the past century the attack, which came to be known as the Camp Grant Massacre, has largely faded from memory. Now, drawing on oral histories, contemporary newspaper reports, and the participants? own accounts, prize-winning author Karl Jacoby brings this perplexing incident and tumultuous era to life to paint a sweeping panorama of the American Southwest?a world far more complex, diverse, and morally ambiguous than the traditional portrayals of the Old West.

    A well writen untold story

    This book was very well done. It was nice to see the book broken up into each individual group that was involved in this sad part of US history.

    Terrific book

    I have worked for the Arizona Historical Society in Tucson for over 15 years and thought I knew a lot about this subject. I learned more about the event from this book than any other source I have seen. I really liked reading it from all the different viewpoints.

    ~Dawn of Dancing Skies-Meeting~

    Dawn of Dancing Skies lept onto High Spire. "May al cats old enough to serve gather here beneath High Spire to hear my words!" She yowled. Once the tribe had gathered, she realized that it was noticicalby bigger than last time. "The time has come to make a desicion. Rose with many Thorns, our Stoneteller after me, has been gone. However, a few of us do know why she is gone." (Broken NOOK!) Dawn watched the tribe, then spoke after a moments hesitation. "Rose will most likely be Stoneteller when we get back, but, I think we need a few cats to lead us. Remember, don't vote for yourselfm but vote for three other members." She meowed. "Vote now. I vote for Rain on Spring Meadows, Leaf that Blows in Wind, and Thunder that Booms Loudly." Dawn meowed. "Flower has gathered enough stones for each member. I have placed objects that represent each member besides kits or to-bes." She flicked her tail towards the objects lying on the cave floor. "Please push a stone towards the cats you think should lead us until Rose gets back." She meowed. "I would also like to welcome Leaf that Blows in Wind, Rock that Lays in River, Smoke, Cloud that Strikes Sky, and Thunder that Booms Loudly." Se meowed, looking at each cat in turn. "Flower, Frost, and Creek that Dapples Moon have returned to the Tribe of Flowing Winds." She meowed, looking at Flower, then Frost, then the tribe because Creek was inside High Spire. She lept down, then pushed her stones towards Rain, Leaf, and Thunder's objects.

    Sorry that took so long to post. I am waiting for a reply at camp, but I am still active. Please post your bios at the last result if you haven't already. Everyone can vote, by the way. Flower, I had you gather stones for this purpose. Thanks for reading!
