This review is from: Warrior Woman: The Story of Lozen, Apache Warrior and Shaman (Hardcover)
This book is for anyone who enjoys a really unusual read. It is primarily an historical account of the wars between the Apache and Mexicans and American army as perceived by the Apaches. Threaded into this, is a collection of stories about a medicine woman, warrior, visionary and horse stealer. These stories are based entirely on Indian oral history. The credibility which is given to these stories depends on how much credibility is given to Indian oral history; which means the stories are PROBABLY true. The author does admit to using considerable 'artistic licence'. This is not a 'woman's lib' book; it gives an insight into Apache religion, mythology, social attitudes and more importantly an insight into their mistrust of the 'treacherous white eyes'. It is very even-handed in the difficulties involved in getting the Indians to settle on the reservations. It does not paint the Indians as innocent victims. If your entire knowledge of the Apache wars is based on Hollywood films, this book will both enlighten and surprise you.
