Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

In 1848, as a result of victory in the Mexican War, the U.S. acquired vast lands in the Southwest, but the U.S. government also inherited a chronic problem that had plagued Mexico for decades: the inability to contain the constant raiding and other depredations by various bands of Apaches. For the U.S., the problem would ebb and flow but would not be fully resolved for another four decades. Perhaps the most well-known and even admired Apache leader in this struggle was Cochise, who led the Chiricahua band. His particular dispute with Americans was supposedly triggered by a young and inexperienced lieutenant, Charles Bascom, who unjustly accused Cochise of kidnapping a young boy. Mort has written an absorbing and balanced account of the origins of the conflict that moves past much of the mythology surrounding it. For example, Cochise, though certainly a charismatic leader of his people, was also a brutal warrior who endorsed torture and the murder of innocents. The U.S. government and white settlers were equally capable of savagery. This is a well-done chronicle of a harsh war fought in a harsh environment. --Jay Freeman

Review

“Meticulously written. Mort makes a fascinating read of every subject he takes up.”
- The Associated Press

“A unique biography of Ernest Hemingway’s decision to volunteer to hunt German U-boats in the Gulf Stream. It was this quest that would shape much of The Old Manand the Sea. A rewarding read about the inner workings of an artistic mind.”
- Kirkus Reviews

“Epic in scope. Terry Mort tells the story of a little-known period in the life of one of America’s greatest novelists”
- Philip Caputo, author of A Rumor of Warand Acts of Faith
