Cremony (1815-1879) met the Apaches first as an enemy but became their greatest advocate. It may have been the only time near the peak of their powers that a white man could have survived within their territory long enough to get to know them. Cremony recognized their primitive virtues as well as their savage flaws. He never idealized them but he admired and respected them as enemies and eventually as friends

Life Among the Apaches by John Cremony is his telling of the nature of the Apache Indians of an early period. Cremony was the first white man to speak Apache. He wrote an Apache – English dictionary, which apparently is still used today.

Cremony’s Life Among the Apaches is a fascinating book that takes the reader into the heart of the old west when American troops and settlers, Apache Native Americans and Mexicans, fought, survived and co-operated in these wild lands. Like most frontiersmen of the mid-nineteenth century, John C. Cremony looked on Indians as unredeemable savages. But he knew Apaches first hand and was a keen and highly literate observer. For all its ethnocentrism, his narrative remains unsurpassed for accuracy and vivid detail among contemporary views of the Apaches. In the literature of the American West.

Cremony was born in Boston in 1815 and claimed to have been of Cuban descent. He ran away to sea where he bore witness to piracy and the slave trade.

Стр. 189 - Apache has as perfect a knowledge of the assimilation of colors as the most experienced Paris modiste. By means of his acumen in this respect, he can conceal his swart body amidst the green grass, behind brown shrubs, or gray rocks, with so much address and judgment that any but the experienced would pass him by without detection at the distance of three or four yards.

Life Among the Apaches by John Cremony is his telling of the nature of the Apache Indians of an early period. Cremony was the first white man to speak Apache. He wrote an Apache – English dictionary, which apparently is still used today. Cremony was an newspaper man who left Boston to join the Army. He was shipped to the SW as part of the Boundary Commission in the late 1840's. He returned again to the area about 12 years later, during the Civil War, as part of the military, reaching the rank of Major. He was in charge of the Apache's throughout this time.

Cremony has lots to say about the Apache and their customs. While not a trained ethnologist, he made the earliest and most thorough investigation of the Apache. Reviewing independent sources, these comments are well regarded. But his accounts of his own exploits are reported to have been greatly exaggerated. Those accounts need to be verified in other sources.

Cremony appears to be of two minds about the Apache. Gradually he developed an appreciation and respect for them in general. He understood that much of the trouble with the Apache was the result of broken promises, to them and unreal expectations of them. He explains how the Indian Agents stole from them. He alludes to the prolongation of the Apache Wars by Whites that enriched themselves supplying the Army. He did not, except for a few passages at the end of the book, understand why the Apache did not embrace the Western Way of Life and Christianity. Cremony is very blunt about the shortcomings of the Frontier Whites and their bad dealings with the Apache and how these bad actors influenced the attitude of the Apaches.

The book reads well. Apparently the original was scanned with OCR and there are many misspellings and bad line breaks and other debris from the scanning that could have edited out. The story is exciting and flows well. The comments on the customs and habits of the Apache are generally well thought out, although Cremony does have some of the Manifest Destiny philosophy. He does make recommendations at the end of the book as to how to improve relations with the Apache. These are harsh, but given the extreme mistrust and vengeance Cremony states the Whites had earned, probably necessary.

This is an unforgettable autobiographical history, well written in an engaging format. The author was uniquely positioned in history, both in time and geographically, just after the Mexican American war in the early to mid 1800s, and in the extreme south of the US, along the Mexican Border Area. He participated in the survey of some of the new border, and held varying roles, including representing the US Government in interacting with varying "Native American Tribes" including Apache Tribes near the border. He was very observant, and articulate in expressing what he saw in his various roles. The "Noble Red Man" image of the Apache Tribes, is tempered by his descriptions of their innate characteristics of deception, merciless viciousness toward victims, and tendency to steal anything not nailed down, including from each other. According to him, the Apache in that part of North America, lived solely from what they stole from others, or hunted in the area. They were in effect, Land Pirates. They excelled in battle, and had no peer in small group tactics and camouflage. He described an incident in which an old man, told him he could hide, where he could not find him. They were standing in an open sandy area, with only a couple of small bushes. He walked away for a few paces, and when he turned, there was no one there. He walked over and around the area repeatedly, finally giving up, and the elderly Apache, stood up, from near one of the bushes, where he had embedded himself within the 10 seconds or so when not in sight. I highly recommend this book, both for quality of material, and writing style.
