5.0 von 5 Sternen History at its Best 28. Oktober 2010
Von Dr RN Watt - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Ed Sweeney's work on Cochise and Mangas Coloradas were excellent additions to our knowledge of the history of the Chiricahua Apaches up to 1874. This last volume takes their story from the death of Cochise up to the final surrender of Geronimo in 1886. I received the book on Friday and had finished it by Sunday evening and it is a superb addition to the literature. The author accomplishes a number of things in his history. He pulls no punches on characters such as Geronimo, Naiche, Chatto, General Crook and General Miles. He gives both criticism and credit where deserved and compelled me to re-evaluate my opinion of such characters. He has also delved into new primary source material and has developed a much clearer picture of the often mutually merciless relations between the Chiricahua Apaches and the Mexicans. Again he does not shy away from telling this story as honestly as possible. This work also gives a good insight into the political side of this conflict and how the efforts of some of the Chiricahua Apaches to resist the US lead to disaster for all of the Chiricahua Apaches. Sweeney also gives us a clear idea of the casualty rates suffered before their deportation to Florida in 1886. These casualty rates also forced the four distinct elements of the Chiricahua Apaches to coalese but Sweeney also notes that this led to the Chiricahuas as a whole to become split into peace and war factions. Again this played into the hands of their enemies. Yet in the light of history Sweeney allows us to understand and sympathise with both factions. For those of you new to the history of the conflict between the Chiricahuas and the USA/Mexico this is a long and detailed book. Nevertheless I would urge you to read this book as it is the most accurate account I have read of this period.

From Cochise to Geronimo: The Chiricahua Apaches, 1874-1886
Edwin R. Sweeney

I am writing this book review, not because Ed Sweeney is one of my best friends, but because he has written, by far, the best overall book on the Apache Wars. I like to tell my friends that I have known Ed since 10 BC (Before Cochise, his first major work) so that would date his scholarly interest in Apache studies at several decades. Ed and I were in our early twenties and now we are both grandfathers. In gathering his information, Ed spent much time at the National Archives in Washington, DC, and almost every depository throughout the United States containing information on the Apaches. He also took many trips into Mexico to take pictures and to gather records that he translated in order to extract the valuable information within.

Admiring his interest in their people, the Apaches at Mescalero embraced Ed's efforts and he now has many friends among them and has been privileged to attend interesting ceremonies that have helped him understand "The People" better. Ed has also walked the ground where many important events took place. Most are not easy to find, but his persistence has paid off and has led to several important discoveries.

From Cochise to Geronimo covers the period after Cochise's death in 1874 to Geronimo's final surrender in 1886 in more detail than any other work to date. Ed has been able to fill in much of the void in all previous treatments on the Apache wars, but this is not to take anything away from the great historian, Dan L. Thrapp, a person deeply admired by Ed. Through his Mexican archives efforts and intense study of the Morris Opler Papers, Ed has been able to fill in details that Dan correctly suspected. Dan was one of Ed's mentors and would have applauded his achievements.

Ed has not only brought out new information on the principals, but also much on many on the periphery, such as Jelikine, Bonito, Chatto and Zele, all of whom were instrumental in adding to this period's tapestry. Even well-versed, or perhaps especially the well-versed in Apache history, will be amazed at his depth of research and findings.

New books on the Apache Wars will continue to be published, but I feel confident that for comprehensiveness none will eclipse From Cochise to Geronimo.

Von Kay's Husband - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
For those of us who follow Edwin R. Sweeney's work on the various Apache bands we have seen his previous books on Cochise (1991), Making Peace with Cochise (1997), and Mangas Coloradas (1998), and we have come to expect not only expert scholarship but in turn a very readable and enjoyable book about these native people.

So too with his latest book in this series-released in October, 2010, entitled From Cochise to Geronimo. In size and scope this volume is almost twice (640 pages) the size of his other works in this area. Building on his previous books he offers 'a definitive history of the turbulent period between Cochise's death and Geronimo's surrender in 1886". He shows that many events of both the 1870s and 1880s occurred 'in part' due to 'distrust' left over from events with the American military in 1861 and 1863. The Apaches have long memories where both American and Mexican activities are concerned. Eventually bands under both Victorio and Geronimo fled to the Sierra Madre of Mexico rather than be moved to the San Carlos Reservation. To bolster his narrative 'Professor' Sweeney resorts to both American and Mexican archives, 'some only recently opened', to offer both fresh interpretation and detail.

Having been a reader of such books since the late Dan L. Thrapp brought out his widely known and well received books of scholarship in this area in the 1960s onward, I not only applaud but appreciate the work of Edwin Sweeney. His efforts of recent years has allowed a much greater understanding of both the Apaches in general and these turbulent times in specific.

Should a reader have any interest in this area of study, these are the books to be read. Especially this latest release, From Cochise to Geronimo. I have hundreds of hardcover books published by The University of Oklahoma dating as far back as the 1950s and marvel at the university's continual ability to issue quality works such as this one.

Semper Fi.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Well done 18. März 2012
Von Frank S. Larkin - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Edwin R. Sweeney has written several books on the Apache Indians. His first two focused on earlier leaders Cochise and Mangas Coloradas. The book on Cochise was well received by most reviewers. I believe Sweeney has matured as a historian since then. With the Mangas Coloradas biography, I could see that he was mining the Mexican sources better than other historians had. In his latest work "From Cochise to Geronimo", he has continued to develop those sources. When describing operations by the Mexican nationals it is clear that he has been looking carefully at the Mexican sources. He clearly has accessed primary source material to describe the Apache actions while in Mexico, yet he does so with a critical eye. Sweeney makes sure to compare sources that disagree, for instance: the Apache view of Chatto as described in the works of Eve Ball is compared with contemporary military dispatches and Sweeney attempts to resolve those differences. This all is done in a very readable format. I definitely recommend this book to those who enjoy reading about this period in American history as well as to those who want a good one volume work that describes the final years of the Apache conflict.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The milestone of Sweeney' s trilogy 2. Februar 2013
Von victorio80 - Veröffentlicht auf
And now here is the third masterpiece of Sweeney's chiricahua apaches trilogy.
Thank to Sweeney we know in detail what's happened from 1874 (Cochise's death)to 1886 (Geronimo and Naiche yield).
With this book, because after Cochise's death the Chiricahuas lacked a dominant tribal chief, we can know the features of the main apache leaders after Cochise: Taza, Victorio, Juh, Nana, Geronimo, Naiche, Chihuahua, Bonito, Chatto etc.
Thank you for your precious trilogy, mr.Sweeney.
I highly recommend to read Sweeney's book!
