In this fictionalized version of a historical incident, Cochise is accused of lying about a kidnapping of a white child. The proud and honest Cochise cannot tolerate this insult, prompting the attack at Apache Pass. No author's note explains why the story deviates so much from the historical record, which indicates that the capture of members of Cochise's family led to the conflict at Apache Pass. Bib.

Gr 6-8?Year: 1861. Place: Apache Pass in the Chiricahua Mountains?essentially, what is now New Mexico. Problem: A 12-year-old white boy is stolen by Indians; this precipitates a search?chiefly by white soldiers?to rescue him. Whites meet Indians; Indians meet whites; there are clashes and killings; the boy is not rescued. It's all too complicated to follow easily, but the author includes interesting incidents and descriptions of Indian life. A good bibliography is appended.?George Gleason, Department of English, Southwest Missouri State University, Springfield
