The biography of John Clum, agent in sole command of the Apaches, most feared of all American Indians. Following his career as agent, Clum founded the historic Tombstone Epitaph, and later served as Mayor of Tombstone at the time of the famous Earp-clanton battle. "Considered for its historical value, or simply as thrilling reading, Clum's story is outstanding among Western biographies - a saga of heroism and adventure that has few parallels in the history of the frontier." _ dustjacket flap.
