Edgar Rice Burroughs - Bibliographic Reference
There were four western adventure stories, and several that could be considered as westerns. Burroughs spent his formative
years in Idaho as a cowboy on his older brothers' BAR-Y Ranch, and as a
cavalryman in Arizona, so the images conjured from those early days found
their way into his later writings. At Fort Grant he was once detailed to
hunt Apaches, and these memories found expression in a highly sympathetic
treatment of Geronimo and his renegade Apaches in two interesting and carefully
researched books (which some critics consider his best writing).

Princess of Mars) began with an Apache raid in Arizona.
