One of the most acclaimed works on the Indian Wars, by an army officer and ethnologist who served on Crook's staff. Dobie calls this a "truly great book, on both the Apaches and the Arizona Frontier." Original green cloth boards with gold title and cover decorated with tipi and weapons. Illustrated with halftones all protected with tissue guards. 491pp. This example appears to be the first British edition published by Sampson Low, Marston, Searle, and Rivington.
