I was fortunate enough to snag a copy of the University of Nebraska Bison printing of this classic book back in 1987. But, must admit to some surprise the University doesn't have this classic yet in print.

This "crackling, swift moving narrative" not only offers chronicle of the pursuit of the Apache marauders "across southern Arizona (Territory) and New Mexico to the Sierra Madre in Mexico in 1883", but will offer also historical reading enjoyment to any interested reader opening its pages. The book was written by General George Crook's aide-de-camp, staff officer of 16 years, John Gregory Bourke. Both this book and ON THE BORDER WITH CROOK, also penned by Captain Bourke are to be considered classics of both the frontier and Indian Wars era in the 19th century.

Captain Bourke was very much an empathetic ethnologist, having interest and great understanding of the native Americans of that time, and his writings offer great insight into the Chiricahua Apaches and others caught up in this conflict of U.S. Army cavalry and the various Apache tribes.

The towns, landscapes, people, and activities of this 1883 campaign are all written about in these pages by one who observed them first-hand. No better factual reading exits of this time, especially coming as it does from a primary source, one who both viewed and lived it. Several histories on this campaign exist but Captain Bourke's is second to none.

Semper Fi.

Real History is being recorded as it happens. You will never think the same about the US cavalry and the Apache Indians as this soldier/anthropologist tells the story of a very willing Apache retreat to agreed to territory, The villains are the American Government agents. The illustrations are by my grandfather A.H. Harmer, an artist/soldier on the expedition. Extraordinary when you think about it! This edition is apparently scanned from the Stanford Library collection.

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.

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.

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.
