This is one of my favorite books about the Pipa a'ha macave, as it tells the story of war between the Mojave, other tribes, and the USA Army in the words of a few Mojave head men. The narration can be considered biased as a defense of Mojave behavior, no less than John Udell's journal giving his side of the argument; a summary of events leading up to the Mojave Wars is found in "Bitterness Road" by Lorraine Sherer.
The book would have a better utility if it had an index.
