The Apache Indians


Cochise. Geronimo. Apache Indians known to generations of readers, moviegoers, and children playing soldier. They enter importantly into this colorful and complex history of the Apache tribes in the American Southwest. Frank C. Lockwood was a pioneer in describing the origins and culture of a proud and fierce people and their relations with the Spaniards, Mexicans, and Americans. Here, too, is a complete picture of the Apache wars with the U. S. Army between 1850 and 1886 and the government's dealings with them. When The Apache Indians was first published in 1938, Oliver La Farge called it "the best study we have of... the military campaigns." Dan L. Thrapp, noted historian of the Apache wars, has written a foreword for this Bison Book edition.
