Abstract:

In the early spring of 1886 the news of a fresh Apache outbreak in Arizona Territory burst from the pages of the newspapers of the United States. Preacher's son, cross-country hiker, ex-Harvard scholar-- and newly appointed city editor of the Los Angeles Times-- Charles F. Lummis was overjoyed to be sent to the front. There he found himself the only newspaper correspondent, and there he found that previous news stories had come from anyone and everyone-- everyone except on-the-spot observers. The dispatches of Lummis to the Times cover the Army's campaign against the renegade Apaches under Nanay, Chihuahua and, most publicized, Geronimo. They present that always-present and often deadly enemy, the rugged terrain of the Southwest itself. There are stories of background information on the Apaches and the outbreak and others on history and tactics of the Army's two redoubtable leaders, General Crook and General Miles. And these dispatches (not surprisingly to those who know the writings of Charles F. Lummis) read today as vividly, as excitingly and as humorously as they did during the turbulent days, three-quarters of a century ago, when they were written -- Book jacket.
