By James L. Haley

Apaches: A background and tradition Portrait, James L. Haley’s dramatic saga of the Apaches’ doomed guerrilla struggle opposed to the whites, used to be a thorough departure from the strategy through past histories of white-native clash. Arguing that "you can't comprehend the historical past except you already know the culture," Haley first discusses the "life-way" of the Apaches - their mythology and folklore (including the well-known Coyote series), non secular customs, lifestyle, and social mores. Haley then explores the tumultuous a long time of alternate and treaty and of betrayal and bloodshed that preceded the Apaches’ ultimate army defeat in 1886. He emphasizes figures that performed a decisive function within the clash: Mangas Coloradas, Cochise, and Geronimo at the one hand, and Royal Whitman, George criminal, and John Clum at the different.
