Description:

Book is bound in orange paper-covered boards with black cloth spine; bright gilt title on spine. Dust jacket has very slight edgewear. The book is INSCRIBED BY THE AUTHOR two times. First, to " E-- E--, with profound thanks for the party -- which was wonderful. Thank you. Best Wishes God bless - Jim Haley 11-20-81." Then on the copyright page "To R-- N--, who scouted the Northwest Frontier of Austin and found this book instead of hostiles- Jim Haley, Feb. 8th, 1987." Also included is a note written on the back of a press release for another of the author's books. The note says: "The E--E-- copy of APACHES, repurchased at Half-Price books (!) by R-- N-- on Feb. 7, 1987, and shown to me that date during the Austin Book and Paper Show. He went out for chicken enchiladas, and proved that there is no God. James Haley, 2/7/87." Aside from the trail of this copy, is the more important content of this book. "Not content simply to recount the dramatic saga of the Apaches' doomed guerrilla war against the whites - though he does so with breathless skill - Haley provides a whole new way of understanding the conflict by giving us an in-depth portrait of the Apaches as a people." 453pp., indexed, bibliography, black and white photos.

About this title:

Synopsis: Apaches: A History and Culture Portrait, James L. Haley€™s dramatic saga of the Apaches€™ doomed guerrilla war against the whites, was a radical departure from the method followed by previous histories of white-native conflict. Arguing that "you cannot understand the history unless you understand the culture," Haley first discusses the "life-way" of the Apaches - their mythology and folklore (including the famous Coyote series), religious customs, everyday life, and social mores. Haley then explores the tumultuous decades of trade and treaty and of betrayal and bloodshed that preceded the Apaches€™ final military defeat in 1886. He emphasizes figures that played a decisive role in the conflict: Mangas Coloradas, Cochise, and Geronimo on the one hand, and Royal Whitman, George Crook, and John Clum on the other.

About the Author:

James L. Haley is an independent scholar living in Austin, Texas. He is the author of numerous books, including The Buffalo War: The History of the Red River Indian Uprising of 1874 and Apaches: A History and Culture Portrait (OU Press).
