Cochise. Firsthand Accounts Of The Chiricahua Apache Chief

Edwin R. Sweeney [Edited By]

Publication: University of Oklahoma Press, 2014, Norman

First edition. 8vo. Signed by the author on the title page. Two-tone quarter cloth and paper over boards, titles stamped in metallic blue on the spine, brown endpapers, xiii [blank], 330 pp., acknowledgments, introduction, illustrated, portraits, map, chapter end notes, bibliography, index. Much of what we know about Cochise has come down in the form of military reports, eyewitness accounts, letters, and numerous interviews the usually reticent chief granted in the last decade of his life. This book brings together the most revealing of these documents to provide the most nuanced, multifaceted portrait possible of the Apache leader. In particular, the interviews, many printed here for the first time, are the closest we will ever get to autobiographical material on this notable man, his life, and his times. As new, unread copy in dust jacket.
