The Apache chief, Cochise, and Tom Jeffords, government scout, succeed in achieving peace after the army fails
  • Thi shas been a long time favorite book. My pocketbook copy was well worn and then disappeared. When I saw this available for purchase, I had to buy. The book arrived in fantastic condition.and to my delight it is in softback size! -- This is a semi biography of one of the southwest's most amazing men:is a large part of the history of Arizona. His name was Cochise.

  • A historical novel based on the exploits of Tom Jeffords, an ordinary American who befriended the Chiricahua Indian chief Cochise in the 1860's and 1870's. I first read this book in the mid 1950's while I was stationed at Ft Huachuca in Cochise County AZ. The locations of the novel were all familiar to me, as I had visited most of them. I am now living in Tucson and am as happy reading this as I was 50+ years ago. Cochise was on the warpath after being betrayed by Lieutenant Bascom who tricked him into a supposed peace parley and attempted to capture him. Tom Jeffords was personally responsible for ending the rampage of Cochise and made it possible for the Chiricahua Indians and the Americans to live in peace in southeastern Arizona. Tom Jeffords is buried in Evergreen Cemetery in Tucson. I took a photo of his headstone and placed it in my copy of the book. This is an extremely interesting read for anyone interested in the history of the American southwest.

  • One of my favorite all-time books. Read it first when I was 12. Have read it over 100 times since then. Just purchased a copy signed by the author and have savored reading it again. Elliot Arnold's writing flows. He takes history, writes a story that stays true to history, and yet reads like a novel. Not only great descriptive writing but clearly shows an understanding of Apache culture and the culture of the times. Love this book. The movie Blood Brother, starring Jimmy Stewart, is based on this book and is a decent movie, too.

  • This is the classic historical novel that the movie , and later the 1956 TV series, 'Broken Arrow' was based upon. While it is written as fiction, it is based on a true occurence in the history of the American Southwest in the 1870s. Because it is fiction, Elliott Arnold was given the liberty of playing with some minor historic facts such as the way Cochise and Tom Jeffords met. In the book, 'Indeh' by Eve Ball, Asa Daklugie gives a totally different account and Edwin R. Sweeney in, 'Cochise: Chiricahua Apache Chief,' the meeting of the two is not given a great bit of attention. Thus, Arnold's fictional account is just that...fiction. No matter how it happened, it put an end temporarily to 11 years of warfare between the Chiricahua and the white American pioneers. The book should be read as a basis to reading other books on the Apache wars that would follow into the 20th century.

  • Arnold's rendering of the friendship between Cochise and Tom Jeffords is a triumph of historical fiction. No poetic detail of communion - between these men and the desert, the mountains, the women they love, and each other - goes unsung by Arnold's tempered, lyrical prose. At its best, "Blood Brother" rejects stereotypical depictions of the so-called "Wild West", attending instead to the microcosm of interpersonal relationships as a reflection of the macrocosmic situations inherent in US Western Expansion. Where it fails, it does so because it waxes sentimental about the innate superiority of Democracy.
    This book excoriates racism and the thoughtless affirmation of "civilized" ways, and uplifts friendship and unconditional affection as the most beloved of human qualities. And, speaking of love...The romance between Jeffords and Sonseeahray, one the details Arnold admits is "pure fiction", is so perhaps because it is a beautiful and impossible ideal; unflinchingly honest, and inconceivably passionate. "Blood Brother" is a reverie.

  • One of the great novels on the American West. Because much of the storyline is based on fact, including some of the actual dialogue between Cochise and Jeffords, the realism is almost tangible. This story should be included in every class on American history.

  • This book came in excellent condition. There were no tears or pages missing. The book was originally published in the late 1940's so that receiving it in such good condition was awesome. The story focuses on the Apache Indians lead by Cochise and the friendship of Tom Jeffords with Cochise. It also gives insight to the plight of the Indians as the Mexicans and Americans were trying to taker away their land.

  • I enjoyed the book very much. loved the history of Arizona in it. Been to visit some of the history points in the book. recommend to anyone who loves the history Arizona.
