The Tonto Apaches were the western-most group of Apache Indians and had been in the remote Rim Country for hundreds of years before the arrival of white trappers, miners and settlers.  They lived off the land as hunter-gatherers, occasionally raiding other groups to acquire horses or cows.  This book describes in detail the resilience of the tonto Apaches as they were forced onto two different reservations, including their winter march to San Carlos in 1875.
