Apache Days And After.

by General Thomas Cruse

Edited, with an Introduction, by Eugene Cunningham. First edition. 8vo. Original green decorated cloth, 328 [1]pp., frontispiece [portrait], illustrated with photographs, author's preface, introduction, bibliographical. A fascinating page of Western military history long buried in the sheaves of Army records is uncovered in this account of the Indian campaigns of Arizona told by an officer who took an active part in the actual fighting itself. Frontier troops were faced with the pursuit and capture of the renegade Apaches of the Southwest. Skirmishes, difficult pursuits, wilderness strategy, and frontier privations are told from a practical militarist's point of view by a man who followed his line of duty. A bright, near fine copy. The price-clipped dust jacket has had the top edge trimmed 1/4", else very good with some rubbing to edges and spine. Very light old damp stain visible on verso of dust jacket at base of spine and lower rear panel. All said, an attractive, collectors copy of a very scarce work.
