34 leaves. The present copy is number 10. The author was an expert on Arizona History who spent 30 years photographing and documenting the history and the archaeological decline of the Camp Date Creek Site. The work opens with the Wickenburg Massacre in 1871 when the Ehrenberg bound stage was attacked killing the driver, five passengers and wounding two. Since it was a day's journey to the Arizona Miner (Prescott), the early accounts were based on the eyewitness account of one of the survivors and unreliable. How it was determined that the Apaches had a band of 15 with additional members ready if needed is a fascinating account of how investigations took place (while the average resident of Arizona only wanted to execute Apaches.).
