In 1887, when a young first sergeant of scouts at San Carlos Agency left his duty station to avenge his grandfathers murder in a tribal manner, he began an inextricable journey through three legal systems: Apache, military, and civil. Though his trials would not end in justice, each played its part in transforming Apache Kid into Arizonas legendary renegade of renegades. Tried for desertion and mutiny under military law, Kid escaped death by firing squad when his sentence was remitted on appeal. Civil authorities then charged and convicted Kid for assault to murder and sentenced him to seven years in the Arizona Territorial Prison at Yuma. Though Kid spoke no more than seven hundred words at his court martial, Clare McKannas use of them in illuminating this legal odyssey is as compelling as Kids escape and legend.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Viewing relations between whites and American Indians through the flawed and complicated legal proceedings against Apache Kid, McKanna makes a major contribution to American Indian history and the history of military justice." -- Gordon Morris Bakken "California State University, Fullerton"
"The tale of the Apache Kid, an icon of Western history, takes an unfamiliar form in this blending of ethnography and legal history. Clare McKanna's deft narrative and unexpected humor, in support of his careful and responsible scholarship, make this book a thoroughly satisfying read." -- Susan A. Miller "Susan A. Miller"
