From the Inside Flap
"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. Recommended as general reading." --"Library Journal"
"This volume contains a great deal of interesting information." --"Journal of the West"
"The Apache point of view presented with great clarity." --"Books of the Southwest"
"A valuable addition to the southwestern frontier shelf and long will be drawn upon and used." --"Journal of Arizona History"
About the Author
James Kaywaykla lived longer to recount Apache history than any of his fellow tribesmen. In his later years, he often stayed in the author’s home to unwind more continuously the thread of narrative. On the warpath in the 1880s with his chieftain elders, shipped with his people to Florida in 1886, Kaywaykla later was a member of a committee that selected Mescalero as the home of the Chiricahuas and the Warm Springs.

Ball also includes footnotes referring the reader to perspectives of various white observers, especially where historical records differ from the Apache side. My only complaint is where these footnotes contained more than mere book, author, or page references and were included at the back of the book. I wish that the additional verbiage had been included at the bottom of the page so that my reading wasn't disrupted by going to the back of the book to see what the reference was about.
He likes that it is factual and comes from interviews with Victorio. He can't
put it down, says he learned many things he had never heard before.
He's happy and I'm happy that I bought it for him.
