The two pre-eminent warriors of the Apache Wars between 1878 and 1886, Lieutenant Charles B Gatewood of the Sixth United States Cavalry and Chiricahua leader Geronimo, respected one another in peace and feared one another in war. Within two years of his posting to Arizona in 1878, Gatewood became the army's premier 'Apache man' as both a commander of Apache scouts and a reservation administrator, but his equitable treatment of Indians aroused the enmity of civilian and military detractors, and the army shunned him. Showing the depravity and desperation of the Apache wars, Louis Kraft dramatically recreates Gatewood's final mission and poignantly recalls the United States government's betrayal of the Chiricahuas, Geronimo, and Gatewood at the campaign's end.

MEDIA REVIEWS
." . . Geronimo and Gatewood emerge from these pages as men of courage and honor whose mutual respect brought a peaceful end to the last Apache war."
. . . Geronimo and Gatewood emerge from these pages as men of courage and honor whose mutual respect brought a peaceful end to the last Apache war.
This recent addition to the parallel lives genre is a superbly-told tale of the vicious Apache wars of the 1880s in Arizona, New Mexico and Mexico."
Thankfully, author Kraft has in large part admirable accomplished this task . . . Kraft has produced a valuable military biography that should interest a wide audience.
. . . the author had done his research and has written an outstanding book. . . . Kraft has a knack for describing terrain and area geography which is so important to any reader interested in the Indian Wars. . . . This book was difficult to put down even though the end was known, . . . a 'must read' and is highly recommended.
