“It’s high noon in late March in Arizona in the late 1880’s. The sun is hot, but not as warm as the coming summer days. Cloud cover is wispy- providing little shade for the alert Apache riders.

Western Apache traveled all throughout Arizona in search of game and places to raid. Their nomadic lifestyle led them to all areas of the state.
These riders are equipped for the upcoming mission. They wear traditional clothing for the late 1800s; apparel was made of trade cloth or raided. Their moccasins are full-length with a toe piece. This bit of reinforcement was invaluable when moving in cactus-filled lands. The front riders carry bows with quivers; the back rider holds a Yellow Boy carbine.” ┬áJames Ayers
