Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Apacheria ran from the Colorado to the Rio Grande and beyond, from the great canyons of the North for a thousand miles into Mexico. Here, where the elusive, phantomlike Apache bands roamed, life was as harsh, cruel, and pitiless as the country itself. The conquest of Apacheria is an epic of heroism, mixed with chicanery, misunderstanding, and tragedy, on both sides.

The author's account of this important segment of Western American history includes the Walapais War, an eyewitness report on the death of the gallant lieutenant Howard B. Cushing, the famous Camp Grant Massacre, General Crook's offensive in Apacheria and his difficulties with General Miles, and the formidable Apache leaders, including Cochise, Delshay, Big Rump, Chunz, Chan-deisi, Victorio, and Geronimo.

Review:

"In this important work, Mr. Thrapp has brought to the Apache Indian Wars of the Southwest the detailed attention they have long deserved. As a survey and synthesis of the Apache campaigns after the Civil War, The Conquest of Apacheria is a first-rate job." The Journal of Arizona History

Review:

"A summary of the Apache Wars that should stand the test of historical judgement. The book is excellent." Odie B. Faulk
