Description - Cochise by Peter Aleshire

A biography of one of the most important figures in the history of the American West This rare biography of the revered Cochise is also the first to adopt an Apache view of a crucial period in American history. Already a powerful and sophisticated leader after years of fighting the Mexicans, Cochise was the only Native American leader to win a war against the Americans after they wrested the southwest from the Mexicans in 1848. Revealed here is the complex and intimate relationship between the Apache and the Mexicans - - and the bewilderment of Apache leaders in dealing with what appeared to be a confusing, contradictory, and, in the end, incomprehensible white world. Peter Aleshire (Phoenix, AZ) is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of American Studies at Arizona State University, West Campus, and author of Reaping the Whirlwind and The Fox and the Whirlwind: Gen. George Crook and Geronimo, A Paired Biography (Wiley: 0-471-32575-9). He is also the Associate Editor of Phoenix Magazine.
