Apache Voices: Their Stories of Survival As Told to Eve Ball
by Sherry Robinson
Book Description: In the 1940s and 1950s, long before historians fully accepted oral tradition as a source, Eve Ball (1890–1984) was taking down verbatim the accounts of Apache elders who had survived the army's campaigns against them in the last century. These oral histories offer new versions—from Warm Springs, Chiricahua, Mescalero, and Lipan Apache—of events previously known only through descriptions left by non-Indians. 

A high school and college teacher, Ball moved to Ruidoso, New Mexico, in 1942. Her house on the edge of the Mescalero Apache Reservation was a stopping-off place for Apaches on the dusty walk into town. She quickly realized she was talking to the sons and daughters of Geronimo, Cochise, Victorio, and their warriors. After winning their confidence, Ball would ultimately interview sixty-seven people. 

Here is the Apache side of the story as told to Eve Ball. Including accounts of Victorio's sister Lozen, a warrior and medicine woman who was the only unmarried woman allowed to ride with the men, as well as unflattering portrayals of Geronimo's actions while under attack, and Mescalero scorn for the horse thief Billy the Kid, this volume represents a significant new source on Apache history and lifeways.

Sherry Robinson went through seventeen unsorted boxes of Ball's papers left at Brigham Young University's Harold B. Lee Library, realizing that Ball had not used all her transcripts in her published books. She also found that the generous, energetic, and strong-willed Eve Ball was as fascinating as her subjects, and she provides lively glimpses into Ball's relationships with fellow Apache scholars Angie Debo and Dan Thrapp.

Mangas Coloradas: Chief of the Chiricahua Apaches (Civilization of the American Indian Series , Vol 231)
by Edwin R. Sweeney
The book is described variously as "blase, a sluggish narrative that is little more than recounting of historical facts", "only occasionally veers into the hagiographical style that disfigures many recent studies of Indian leaders", and "well-written book would have been even stronger had it more greatly emphasized Apache social organization and political system".

Thunder Rides a Black Horse: Mescalero Apaches and the Mythic Present
Thunder Rides a Black Horse: Mescalero Apaches and the Mythic Present
by Claire R. Farrer
Book Description: The impressive four-day and four-night Mescalero Apache girls puberty ceremonial provides the structure for Farrer's consideration of the ways in which old myths and legends inform contemporary actions and beliefs. Why people behave as they do is as much a focus as is their actual behavior. Through instructions given to Farrer by Bernard Second, her Apache teacher for fourteen years, readers gain insight into the importance of narrative, not just in ceremony but especially in everyday living on a contemporary Indian reservation in the American Southwest. Sights and smells are almost palpable as the author provides the best in reflexive ethnography by allowing readers to see her as a person rather than an all-knowing anthropologist. She neither romanticizes nor patronizes the Apachean people, who are presented as people with foibles as well as possessing much worthy of admiration.
