Publisher's Summary

A masterful reconstruction of one of the worst Indian massacres in American history.

In April 1871, a group of Americans, Mexicans, and Tohono O'odham Indians surrounded an Apache village at dawn and murdered nearly 150 men, women, and children in their sleep. 

In the past century, the attack, which came to be known as the Camp Grant Massacre, has largely faded from memory. Now, drawing on oral histories, contemporary newspaper reports, and the participants' own accounts, prizewinning author Karl Jacoby brings this perplexing incident and tumultuous era to life to paint a sweeping panorama of the American Southwest - a world far more complex, diverse, and morally ambiguous than the traditional portrayals of the Old West.

Everyone should read this book!

Great structure, narrative and understanding of American History and humanity. As a current graduate student and history teacher this book has opened may different avenues to the way I will be teaching and view all history I view and analyze in the future.
