The Apache Wars {a review}

The Apache Wars by Paul Andrew Hutton is quite possibly the most meticulously researched book I think I've ever read...and it's not the least bit boring! This historical non-fiction is mostly told in chronological order with only a few exceptions (though dates are always noted).

The author gives us an amazing look at the dangerous life on the frontier, the Apache raids in the US and Mexico, the unfair treatment of the Apaches, and so much more. The Chicago Tribune, in a review, said that this book was "[A] major work of history on a much-neglected subject...". I could not agree more. It motivates me to learn more about other tribes and sub-tribes/clans, especially that of the Cherokee since my great-grandmother was full-blooded Cherokee.

I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in history!
