updated prologue

I’ve updated the prologue to add John Bourke’s thumbnail description of Nané (as Bourke spells it). Bourke was a keen observer whose views on the Apaches were sympathetic but unclouded by sentimentality. His perceptive comment on the old man’s “under stratum of cruelty and vindictiveness” goes a long way toward explaining the events of the Raid.
