Title

Cochise, Chiricahua Apache Chief

Description

Sweeney exhibits an impressive grasp of a man, his culture, and his times in this epic biography of the Chiricahua Apache warrior (d. 1874) who raided across southern Arizona and northern Mexico in the mid-decades of the nineteenth century. Based on extensive research in Mexican and U.S. archives, supplemented with first-person accounts and ethnographic sources, he paints a sympathetic but clear-eyed portrait of a towering leader marshaling his people in determined and effective resistance to incursions on their homeland.
