REDUCED Chief Victorio of the Warm Springs Apache, has recounted the turbulent life of his people between 1876 and 1886. This eyewitness account . . . recalls not only the hunger, pursuit, and strife of those years, but also the thoughts, feelings, and culture of the hunted tribe.
...a haunting narrative of the history of the Apache and events that unfolded during the 1880s, as told to author, Eve Ball, by James Kawaykla.
