Description
"Historian [Karl] Jacoby makes an important contribution to the scholarship of the American West with this balanced portrait of the brutal Camp Grant massacre in Arizona. On April 30, 1871, more than 50 Apache Indians—mostly women and children—were massacred by a group of vigilantes made up of Americans, Mexicans, and Tohono O'odham Indians. What made the atrocity even more unbelievable to the general public was the fact that the Apaches were living under the protection of the U.S. Army on a government-sponsored tract of land. Recounting the story from four divergent points of view, Jacoby sheds insight into the social, political, and economic complexities that characterized the 19th-century frontier. In addition, he also places the massacre and the federal investigation that followed firmly into historical context by providing a concise history of the highly charged cultural conflicts that plagued the territory for several preceding centuries."—Booklist
