Title

Life Among the Apaches

Description

Cremony (1815-1879) led an adventurous life as an interpreter with the U.S.-Mexico Boundary Commission, 1849-1851, and as an officer with the California Column during the Civil War in Arizona and New Mexico. In this stirring memoir, the former Boston newspaperman describes fierce battles and hair-raising escapes across the length and breadth of northern Mexico and the American Southwest. But the book’s enduring value lies in the careful attention he pays to Native American (particularly Apache) people, culture, and lifeways. --Bruce J. Dinges.
