In Howard Terpning: Spirit of the Plains People, Don Hedgpeth wrote, “The Apache was as tough as the country in which he lived. Arizona was his stronghold and he knew that lonesome land, every hidden mountain pass and secret desert pool in the rock. The Apache seemed primitive in comparison to the Great Plains tribes that developed elaborate cultures based upon the buffalo. There was nothing of feathers and flamboyance about the Apache. He lived in crude stick shelters called ‘wickiups’ and scavenged for food like his wild brother, the wolf.”
