Sixteen years old in 1886, Runs With Horses is a member of the last small band of Apaches continuing to resist the U.S. Army. His training for manhood as a Chiricahua Apache has been difficult but thrilling, and he is eager to accomplish the final two of the four raids required to become a warrior. Sadly, this is not possible when they at last surrender to the U.S. Army. "With its compact size, terse sentences, and action-packed plot, the book is certain to lure reluctant readers, and history buffs will applaud the factual epilogue." - Booklist.
