Originally published over 100 years ago, LIFE AMONG THE APACHES is John Cremony's absorbing eyewitness description of pre-reservation Apache life and culture. Through his years in the military Cremony fought in the war with Mexico and participated in many Indian campaigns in the southwest deserts. In 1848 he served as Spanish interpreter for the U. S. ? Mexico Boundary Commission where he learned to speak Apache and subsequently wrote a glossary and grammar of the language. Although he wrote this book with the intent to encourage more effective military suppression of the intimidating Apaches, this historical document has all of the fast-paced action and excitement of a Wild West novel.
