Page 25 Preface This is a volume of simple narrative without any effort at literary skill. It is not fiction, but truth; and truth is stranger than fiction. In connection with this story of the life of "Andele" among the Kiowas, much of the habits, customs, and superstitions of the Indians is given: and, indeed, no incident is related that does not set forth some phase of Indian life in its real light.

Indian raids against peripheral villages in New Mexico were commonplace, and the seizure of women, children, and livestock the likely result. Pursuit and rescue might be attempted, but all too often proved fruitless. Most Anglos in Santa Fe probably agreed with Colonel E. V. Sumner's assessment some years earlier, when he claimed that this predatory warfare has been carried on for over 200 years, between the Mexican & the Indians, quite enough time to prove that unless some change is made the war will be interminable.
