As Crook's aide, Bourke had the opportunity to witness every facet of life in the Old West – the battles, wildlife, the internal squabbling among the military, the Indian Agency, settlers, and Native Americans. Bourke kept a diary in sequential journals, documenting his observations in the West. He used these notes as the basis for his later monographs and writings including this book; "The Medicine-Men of the Apache; Ninth Annual Bureau Of Ethnology Report: 1888."

"He was recognized in his own time for his ethnological writings on various indigenous peoples of the North American Southwest, particularly Apachean groups."
