Josanies's War is one of the best novels I've ever read on the final Chiricahua outbreak of 1885 under Geronimo, Naiche and band leaders like Josanie. The author appears to know the country very well and blends history and fiction together in way I've rarely seen. Chiricahua Apache beliefs are handled well and with respect and these people come alive as living, breathing human beings. The narrative moves swiftly and being Apache I see many of the places described in the novel clearly. There are one or two mistakes but they are minor and the average reader would never catch them so I won't dwell on these. A joy to read and part of my permanent collection of great novels on tribal American people.
