"A fascinating account of Apache history and ethnography. All the narratives have been carefully chosen to illustrate important facets of the Apache experience. Moreover, they make very interesting reading....This is a major contribution to both Apache history and to the history of the Southwest....The book should appeal to a very wide audience. It also should be well received by the Native American community. Indeh is oral history at its best."---R. David Edmunds, Utah Historical Quarterly

Eve Ball held bachelors and master?s degree and an honorary doctorate from the University of Colorado at Boulder. Along-time resident of Ruidoso, on the edge of the Mescalero Apache reservation in southern New Mexico, she conducted her interviews and her research among the Apaches over three decades. Nora Henn and Lynda A. Sanchez, friends who help Ball prepare her manuscript, have since pursued Indian studies and the history of Lincoln County, New Mexico.
“A masterpiece of oral history...The [Apache] survivors tell a gripping story of danger and hardship—war in the Southwest, exile in Florida and Alabama, prisoner-of-war status in Oklahoma and , finally, the return home. Not only do we get a fresh view—the Indian view—of historical events, we come to understand and respect the Apache as a people.”—Publishers Weekly
“Deeply touching are the sensitive discussions of Apache family life, rarely ever disclosed to outsiders. The book is well documented, appointed, edited and indexed, and the many photographers are well chosen.”—Arizona Highways
“An extraordinarily valuable contribution to the history of the Apaches and to our knowledge of them. But for Eve Ball, these sincere and graphic accounts of the Apaches’ side of the story would have been lost forever.”—Donald E. Worcester, Arizona and the West
“This is a book that may be enjoyed and appreciated by the general reader while providing the serious scholar with insight into Apache thinking and emotions and a much broader comprehension of the years conflict than has previously been available.... Indeh is a worthwhile addition to anyone’s southwestern library.”—Journal of Arizona History
