Descripción

New York, 1990, Sterling, US first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 8 1/2 x 11 1.2, VG / VG condition, 256 page, prof. illustrated in B&W and color, plus numerous line drawings, appendices, bibliog, index.-----------------------------------------------------------During the years following the Civil War, the U. S. military waged numerous and bloody campaigns against the Apache. In contrast to Hollywood versions of severe defeats suffered by the Indians, here is a faithful depiction of the cunning war tactics carried out by the tribe who resisted the white man's domination longer than any other in the West. Award-winning Western artist and historian E. Lisle Reedstrom writes about one of the most often fictionalized sagas of American history with rare accuracy and authenticity.Apache Wars vividly covers the times in which the U. S. Cavalry troopers and the Apache warriors lived and campaigned. It brings to life the rules that governed their lives, the daily routines they performed in the call of duty, what the soldiers and Indians wore, what they ate, what arms and equipment they used against each other—from the troopers stationed in old Arizona to Geronimo and his renegade band escaping to Mexico.Above all, these are tales of heroism, portrayed by the author in 16 pages of his own gallery-quality paintings. Most haunting of all: dozens of rare, closeup photographs of Apache warriors and chiefs. N° de ref. de la librería 36971

Sinopsis:

The Apache were cunning guerilla fighters and among the toughest of the Indian warriors. This saga by Western artist and historian Lisle Reedstrom includes the religious traditions of the Apaches, their costumes and customs, weapons used by both the Apaches and the US Cavalry who pursued and finally defeated them. A special feature of the book is the illustrations, from the 16 pages of colour paintings by the author, to dozens of close-up photographs of Apache warriors and chiefs alongside US soldiers and generals who tried to destroy them.

From Library Journal:

The Apache people deserve to be remembered for much more than their renegades, but public interest in their warlike days remains high. Reedstrom is a historian and noted illustrator of Western and cavalry themes, and this book reflects his military interest. The various campaigns and forays throughout Arizona Territory and northern Mexico are covered in vigorous detail. Numerous period photographs, particularly of a subjugated Geronimo, are both arresting and poignant. The author's own detailed color drawings of U.S. army uniforms and Indian dress make the book a useful reference source as well as a delight to the military buff. Military Book Club selection.
