When the Apache wars ended in the late nineteenth century, a harsh and harrowing time began for the Western Apache people. Living under the authority of nervous Indian agents, pitiless government-school officials, and menacing mounted police, they knew that resistance to American authority would be foolish.

European visitors brought with them varying conceptions of nature as sublime, as spiritual,

Beginning with his early days with the Peace Corps in Africa and culminating with a recent bout with cancer, The Power of the Between is
