about

An Apache Campaign in the Sierra Madre is a crackling, swift-moving narrative of General George Crook's pursuit of Geronimo and other Apache Indians across southern Arizona and New Mexico to the Sierra Madre in Mexico in 1883. The Chiricahua Apaches and their culture, the towns and landscapes, the progress of the military expedition—all are observed at first hand by General Crook's aide-de-camp, Captain John G. Bourke, who will be remembered for this and another classic, On the Border with Crook.
In his foreword, Joseph C. Porter, author of Paper Medicine Man: John Gregory Bourke and His American West, places this work in historical context and discusses Bourke's career as a military officer and an ethnologist of considerable merit.
