His works-On the Border with Crook and An Apache Campaign in the Sierra Madre (both published by Leonaur)-concerning the wars fought by the United States Army against the Apache Indian tribes, and based on his experiences whilst a serving cavalry officer on General Crooks staff, are rightly considered classics of the subject. Those who know anything about the author know that Bourke not only fought the Apache and served with Apache scouts but also developed an abiding affection for them as a people and an interest in the culture and customs of the indigenous Indian tribes of the region in general. This resulted in the writing of several small works of ethnography which have been gathered together in this special Leonaur edition-possibly for the first time.Leonaur editions are newly typeset and are not facsimiles- each title is available in softcover and hardback with dustjacket- our hardbacks are cloth bound and feature gold foil lettering on their spines and fabric head and tail bands.
