    "Master strategist, spellbinding orator, religious, political, and moral leader. This was Cochise, the most revered warrior of the embattled Apaches, and one of the pivotal figures in the history of the American West. A powerful and sophisticated leader after years of fighting, Cochise was the only Native American leader to win a war against the white Americans after they wrested the southwest from Mexico in 1848. In this biography, author and historian Peter Aleshire provides the first Apache view of a crucial period in American history - and offers an intimate glimpse of the intriguing man behind the legendary warrior."--Jacket

    Once They Moved Like the Wind is the epic story of the Apache campaign, told with sympathy and understanding. David Roberts recognizes that in struggling to save their land, the Apaches were fighting to preserve their way of life. Evenhandedly, he describes the sorry history of the reservations, where the Apaches were deceived and abused by the U.S. government and its agents, while at the same time he acknowledges reliable contemporary sources that reported on the Apaches' cruelty. Using historical archives and contemporary accounts, David Roberts has written an original, stirring account of the last years of the free Apaches

    In February 1861, the twelve-year-old son of Arizona rancher John Ward was kidnapped by Apaches. Ward followed their trail and reported the incident to patrols at Fort Buchanan, blaming a band of Chiricahuas led by the infamous warrior Cochise. Though Ward had no proof that Cochise had kidnapped his son, Lt. George Bascom organized a patrol and met with the Apache leader, who, not suspecting anything was amiss, had brought along his wife, his brother, and two sons. Despite Cochise's assertions that he had not taken the boy and his offer to help in the search, Bascom immediately took Cochise's family hostage and demanded the return of the boy. An incensed Cochise escaped the meeting tent amidst flying bullets and vowed revenge.What followed that precipitous encounter would ignite a Southwestern frontier war between the Chiricahuas and the US Army that would last twenty-five years. In the days following the initial melee, innocent passersby -- Apache, white, and Mexican -- would be taken as hostages on both sides, and almost all of them would be brutally slaughtered. Cochise would lead his people valiantly for ten years of the decades-long war.Thousands of lives would be lost, the economies of Arizona and New Mexico would be devastated, and in the end, the Chiricahua way of life would essentially cease to exist.In a gripping narrative that often reads like an old-fashioned Western novel, Terry Mort explores the collision of these two radically different cultures in a masterful account of one of the bloodiest conflicts in our frontier history

    "Released in 1950, this groundbreaking western - arguably the first to feature an Indian hero - stars James Stewart as Tom Jeffords, an ex-army scout with a conscience who embarks on a one-man peace mission with the Apaches following ten years of war between settlers and Indians. Forming a diplomatic partnership with righteous Apache leader Cochise (Jeff Chandler, in a formidable, Oscar-nominated role), Jeffords later falls in love with an Indian girl who he marries in an Apache ceremony. He then brokers a three month truce with Conchise that is broken by renegade settler attacks before a lasting peace treaty is renewed. A movie that shifted the political boundaries of the western film genre, Broken Arrow is a tense, violent but delicate retelling of the Indian Wars that features towering performances from Stewart and Chandler"--Container
