In 1871, a group of Americans, Mexicans, and Tohono O'odham Indians surrounded an Apache village at dawn and murdered nearly 150 men, women, and children in their sleep. Jacoby draws on oral histories, contemporary newspaper reports, and the participants' own accounts to bring the incident to life and paint a panorama of the Old American Southwest as complex, diverse, and morally ambiguous.
