Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Goodwin's fascinating Western Apache narratives not only enable the reader to travel with the Apaches on their raids, but also give excellent insight into the method and purpose of their raiding and warfare. It is an Apache story with Apache participants, as told by the Apache. . . Most readable and is highly recommended." —Arizona and the West"Readers also get a clear understanding of subsistence, equipment manufacture and use, leadership roles, intertribal relationships, dangers of scouting, Apache values, native observations of culture change. . . . The materials are rich and offer unlimited potential for analysis." —American Anthropologist"The personal narratives of six Western Apaches . . . whose active lives spanned more than a century and witnessed a society in the process of revolutionary change! These straightforward accounts comprise Part I and some two-thirds of the book. Part II, dealing with weapons, taboos, leadership and other aspects of Apache warfare, is both interesting and informative. . . . A must for all those who would understand the Western Apache." —Journal of Arizona History"An extremely valuable collection of Apache memoirs. . . The personal recollections supply precious information and interpretation which will go far toward balancing our traditional version of Indian history. . . . The book is highly readable and should interest both scholar and buff." —Journal of the West
