. . . this very readable book . . . adds to the body of knowledge available about the Apache people.
Robinson has done some excellent homework and editing to make the accounts . . . live with thorough footnoting, explanation, anecdote and insight.
"This collection provides a vivid, compelling portrait of Apache history and life as seen from the Apache perspective and is a valuable addition to the study of oral history."
"Ball's original books were important for providing at least a portion of a more balanced account. Robinson has improved that balance even more with her additional research and corrections."
"Sherry Robinson's "Apache Voices" is a significant new source for Apache history. . . .Robinson masterfully arranges these untold Apache stories into four parts and provides illuminating chapter introductions."
This is an exciting book to read. It contains short true adventure stories (frequently tragic). . . .
