John C. Cremony's first encounter with the Indians of the Southwest occurred in the early 1850s, when he accompanied John R. Bartlett’s boundary commission surveying the United States-Mexican border. Some ten years later, as an officer of the California Volunteers, he renewed his acquaintance, particularly with the Apaches, whom he came to know as few white Americans before him had. Cremony's account of his experiences, published in 1868, quickly became, and remains today, a basic source on Apache beliefs, tribal life, and fighting tactics. Although its original purpose was to induce more effective military suppression of the Apaches, it has all the fast-paced action and excitement of a novel and the authenticity of an ethnographic and historical document.

Life among the Apaches by John C. Cremony, a surveyor for the U.S. Boundary Commission, mapping the American/Mexican frontier in the 1850s. There he experienced Apache culture, and over the next twenty years learned more about them than any other white man knew. Life Among the Apaches survives today as the first and foremost source on Apache beliefs, fighting tactics, and tribalism.

This was a fantastic book depicting the nature of the Apaches as described by someone who lived among them for many years. The author does his best to detail the lives of the Apaches without exaggeration or persuasion considering his personal beliefs. Loved it.
