Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3-5-- Kent briefly summarizes the life of the great Apache leader. Emphasis is on the presentation of the known facts, with little analysis of those facts. While he uses pejorative adjectives (savage, hate-filled, creeping) routinely, Kent also takes care to point out that the Apaches and other tribes were not treated fairly or honestly, and that whites were often unreasonably hostile and violent. The events of Geronimo's life are dramatic enough to sweep readers along despite the somewhat dry recounting. The numerous photographs will also spark interest, and are a vast improvement over the dull drawings that used to appear in this series. Ronald Syme's Geronimo (Morrow, 1975; o.p.) is equally accessible for this age group, but lacks the striking photographs. Wright's straightforward account of ``the Wall'' that honors America's Vietnam War dead covers the genesis of the idea, the design contest, the c ongressional action that made it possible, the construction, the controversy, and the opening of this compelling memorial structure. The photographs, many in color, add dramatic impact to the low-keyed presentation. Brent Ashabranner's Always to Remember (Dodd, 1988) contains much more information, but is for an older audience. Both titles should prove appealing to browsers and useful for reports. --Elaine Fort Weischedel, Turner Free Library, Randolph, MA
