Trippin’ with SB Alec & Denise

[Silverback Alec and Silverbelle Denise have left Vermont for the wide open spaces of the American. Here is the first of what we hope will be several Trippin’ posts. Main photo is from The Badlands National Park, which isn’t looking so bad from this post. SB SM]

“I am reading Elliot Arnold’s historical novel, Blood Brother right now, a terrific book about Cochise and an equally fascinating  Westerner named Tom Jeffords. The West … what an otherworldly landscape!”

A classic of Southwestern literature and the basis for the highly acclaimed 1950 film, Broken Arrow, Blood Brother is “a history in fiction form, of the Southwest, from the time of the Gadsden Purchase in 1856 until the end of the Indian wars, about 1870. The author has translated matter-of-fact historical incidents into thrilling episodes, following the adventures of Cochise, noted chief of the Chiricahua Apaches, and Tom Jeffords, famous peace maker and Indian agent, with great detail..”-Library Journal “Elliott Arnold has written a historical novel about the Apache Indians.with a knowledge truly astonishing for its comprehensiveness. . . . [It is] authentic history, presented, however, with fictional vividness.”-New York Sun “Blood Brother is dramatic, fast-moving fiction. It is superb history. It is excellent biography. It takes place with the major works on the American Indian.”-Chicago Tribune
