...a haunting narrative of the history of the Apache and events that unfolded during the 1880s, as told to author, Eve Ball, by James Kawaykla. He lived longer to recount Apache history than any of his fellow tribesmen, and at the time of the events was a young child. Compelling and heartbreaking, this is a recommended read for anyone interested in Native American history and the saga of the Southwest.

Offers a great glimpse of the lives of Native Americans who were evading and fighting the U.S. Army during the Indian Wars period of American Western History. Very much enjoyed the accounts of tracking, hunting, evading, and simply surviving. Sometimes hard to follow exactly what is going on in the story but a great account from the Native perspective nonetheless.

A haunting story of a great people who were hounded out of their homeland like animals. A people who had much respect for each other.
