“In what is primarily a life and times study of the plight of the Mimbres in the white man’s world, Thrapp condemns the forces that drove Victorio to the warpath, hoping a recital of them will ‘sting the conscience’ of present day Americans…Thrapp’s study of Victorio will become the standard authority on the celebrated Apache.” ~ East Texas Historical Society

“Thrapp has done an outstanding job of interweaving Victorio’s story into the history of the Mimbrenos and their relationship with other Apache bands. With a high degree of skill the author has brought forth a balanced and sympathetic treatment of the skirmishes and battles in an often brutal and inhuman warfare by both sides; the changing relationships between the Apaches and the government ; and the disillusionment and despair suffered by a people who were fighting to keep from being submerged by a non-Indian society.” ~ Montana: The Magazine of Western History

“Scholars and ‘buffs’ alike will enjoy and profit from this book which spells out in microcosm what was wrong with nineteenth-century United States Indian policy.” ~ American Indian Quarterly

“Dan Thrapp has done it again — he has produced a well-researched scholarly study. Both the author and the publisher should be congratulated on the production of this welcome addition to Western Americana.” ~ New Mexico Historical Review
