This is a short book compiled from the author's diary during the Sierra Madre campaign to capture Geronimo. It is well written and was very popular in the 1880s

Another informative historical text by a very underrated source...just a guy that was there and knew most of the players personally. There is no grandiosity on the writer's part, trying to make himself sound more gallant or important than he was...just an honest accounting of one of the more amazing accomplishments in the history of the Apache conflict. Bourke was a great storyteller, I could not recommend this book more (and frankly any other by this author). If you are a Southwest history buff - here's your guy.

This is really more of a booklet than a book, and covers one of Crook's campaigns into Mexico seeking renegade Apaches. Bourke somewhat taints his message with several discourses about the "Indian Ring" in Arizona who supposedly wanted the Indians eradicated so that they could plunder the Apache lands. This tome is a poor cousin to his "On the Border with Crook". Nonetheless, it does present a factual retelling of this campaign.

I liked it! It is recollection from a primary source, who occasionally admits when he does not recall something. Engaging and interesting. Sometimes, he refers to someone like we should know who that person is, when they have never been introduced. I would have preferred some annotations in those situations.

Good description of the rugged beauty of the country and the mountains.
Made it seem that success of the campaign was actually accomplished by the Apache Scouts and not so much by the American soldiers.

This is a very good book for those interested in the period. It is obviously written by an educated individual. I strongly recommend it.

Believably factual. Contrite and brief. Would not consider this a novel but an excerpt from a larger volume of work.
