About this title


"Chief Victorio of the Warm Springs Apache has recounted the turbulent life of his people between 1876 and 1886. This eyewitness account . . . recalls not only the hunger, pursuit, and strife of those years, but also the thoughts, feelings, and culture of the hunted tribe. Recommended as general reading."—Library Journal

"This volume contains a great deal of interesting information."—Journal of the West

"The Apache point of view [is] presented with great clarity."—Books of the Southwest

"A valuable addition to the southwestern frontier shelf and long will be drawn upon and used."—Journal of Arizona History

"A genuine contribution to the story of the Apache wars, and a very readable book as well."—Westerners Brand Book

"Shining through every page is the unquenchable spirit that was the Apache. Inured, indeed trained, to suffering, Apaches stood strong beside Victorio, Nana, and finally Geronimo in a vain attempt to maintain those things they held more dear than life itself—freedom, homeland, dignity as human beings. A warm and vital people, the Apaches had, and have, a great deal to offer."—Arizona and the West 

About the Author:

Eve Ball has lived in the Ruidoso highlands of New Mexico, close to the Mescalero Reservation. Geography made her neighbor to the Apaches; sympathy and liking made her their friend; sensitivity to their part in the historic Southwestern drama made her their historian—able to see experience through their eyes, just as she used the lends of a pioneer Lincoln County woman to view and relate the saga of Ma’am Jones of the Pecos. She also edited and annotated the colorful Lily Klasner autobiography My Girlhood Among Outlaws.

James Kaywaykla lived longer to recount Apache history than any of his fellow tribesmen. In his later years, he often stayed in the author’s home to unwind more continuously the thread of narrative. On the warpath in the 1880s with his chieftain elders, shipped with his people to Florida in 1886, Kaywaykla later was a member of a committee that selected Mescalero as the home of the Chiricahuas and the Warm Springs.
