18 of 18 people found the following review helpful By Sandra Sunderland on April 4, 1998
Format: Paperback
Opler's book is the result of lengthy interviews with informants during the early part of the Twentieth century .He has quoted many of these Apaches verbatum without editorializing thereby providing an authentic picture of the tribal lifeway during the 19th century. The reader learns not only the ethnological facts but senses the feelings, values and emotions of these people. "An Apache Lifeway" remains the most definitive source of material cited in later publications on the subject. The book is easily readable because anthropological jargon is avoided.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I enjoyed the book; interesting way to start a book of this nature, but it made sense. Sometimes it felt as though he were being judgmental, but for the most part, I found what was written to be respectful & insightful.

I must add a note though: I asked an Apache man in his mid 50's if he knew the author. He said most of what Mr. Opler has written are lies; that he just wrote his books to make money off of the People...

Format: Paperback
This book is an invaluable resource for anyone interested in Apache culture. It may not have the flow of novel but that is not the intention. This book is a glimpse into the lives of the fiercest and most honorable Native Americans that ever lived...the Apache.
