A tramp across the continent by Charles Fletcher Lummis( Book )

31 editions published between 1892 and 2013 in English and held by 446 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the author's own words this is "...the wayside notes of a happy vagabondizing. It is the simple story of joy on legs." An exciting account of the experiences of young Lummis as he walked in a roundabout way from Cincinnati to Los Angeles. The areas he covered were far wilder in 1884 than they are today, but, they are still a haven for those who want to avoid the "fences of civilization" as Lummis did. He encounters good men, bad men, a vicious dog, wild cat, mountain lion, cougar, rattlesnake, tarantulas, intense cold of the mountains in a snow storm, blistering heat of the desert. Only a person in good physical condition could withstand the rigorous demands of walking twenty, thirty, of fifty miles in a day as Lummis did. He would often have gone without food had he not been a good fisherman and marksman. Even when food was scarce. His agility and quick reason saved his life at least three times. Once in an encounter with a convict, once with a mountain lion, and once with his own dog. One of the most poignant episodes is the killing of his faithful greyhound dog Shadow who suddenly turns mad -- Book jacket

General Crook and the Apache wars by Charles Fletcher Lummis( Book )

7 editions published between 1966 and 1985 in English and held by 343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the early spring of 1886 the news of a fresh Apache outbreak in Arizona Territory burst from the pages of the newspapers of the United States. Preacher's son, cross-country hiker, ex-Harvard scholar-- and newly appointed city editor of the Los Angeles Times-- Charles F. Lummis was overjoyed to be sent to the front. There he found himself the only newspaper correspondent, and there he found that previous news stories had come from anyone and everyone-- everyone except on-the-spot observers. The dispatches of Lummis to the Times cover the Army's campaign against the renegade Apaches under Nanay, Chihuahua and, most publicized, Geronimo. They present that always-present and often deadly enemy, the rugged terrain of the Southwest itself. There are stories of background information on the Apaches and the outbreak and others on history and tactics of the Army's two redoubtable leaders, General Crook and General Miles. And these dispatches (not surprisingly to those who know the writings of Charles F. Lummis) read today as vividly, as excitingly and as humorously as they did during the turbulent days, three-quarters of a century ago, when they were written -- Book jacket

Bullying the Moqui by Charles Fletcher Lummis( Book )

Bullying the Moqui is the dramatic story of the attempts to forcibly "civilize" the Hopi Indians of Arizona by herding the children to government schools at gunpoint, by "scalping" the men with sheepshears and suppressing the sacred dances and religious ceremonies. This book not only preserves the brilliant journalistic record of Charles Fletcher Lummis' campaign against the Indian policies but reveals fresh research on his personal relationship with Theodore Roosevelt and his influence upon the President's views of the American Indian -- Book jacket
