Apache cowboy sops up stew during the fall cattle drive. He tends Herefords in the White Mountains of eastern Arizona, where the Fort Apache Indian Reservation spreads over 1,664,872 acres of forested highland and rolling grassland. Stout lariats induce a reluctant steer to cross a rain-slick road as Apaches move their cattle from high summer pastures to auction pens in Whiteriver. Cochise, Geron imo, Mangas Coloradas, and other Apache warriors roamed these hills a century ago.
