This book describes in detail the resilience of the Tonto Apache as they were forced onto two different reservations, including their winter march to San Carlos in 1875. Their struggle continued after the Indian wars as they returned to Rim Country to find they had no homeland remaining. After years of families living on Indian Hill in Payson, AZ and The Camp on the south end of town, local leaders and townspeople got together to find a better solution. Finally, in 1972, land was designated specifically for them. This is a true story of survival under the harshest conditions and a testament to the strength and perseverance of the Tonto Apache people.
