Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

andldquo;Cochiseandrdquo; was a name that struck terror in hearts across the Southwest. Yet in the autumn of 1872, Brigadier General Oliver O. Howard and his aid-de-camp, Lieutenant Joseph Alton Sladen, entered Arizonaandrsquo;s rocky Dragoon Mountains in search of the elusive Chiricahua Apache chief. Accompanied only by a guide and two Apache scouts, they sought to convince Cochise that the bloody fighting between his people and the Americans must stop. Cochise had already reached that conclusion, but he had found no American official he could trust.

Slade, Howardandrsquo;s devoted aide, maintained a journal during their two-month quest from Fort Tularosa, New Mexico, to Cochiseandrsquo;s stronghold. Joseph Sladenandrsquo;s journalandmdash;enriched by Edwin R. Sweeneyandrsquo;s introduction, epilogue, and lively notesandmdash;is a unique source on Chiricahua lifeways and an engrossing tale of travel and adventure.

Book News Annotation:

This is a paperbound reprint of a 1997 book. Sladen was aide-de-camp to General Oliver Otis Howard in the small party that entered the stronghold of legendary Chiricahua Apache chief Cochise in the foothills of Arizona's Dragoon Mountains; their purpose was to end the 12-year war between the tribe and the US government. His journal has been passed down the generations of his family. Editor Sweeney is also the author of a biography of Cochise. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
