Overview

The initial idea of the compilation of this work was to give the reading public an authentic record of the private life of the Apache Indians, and to extend to Geronimo as a prisoner of war the courtesy due any captive, i. e., the right to state the causes which impelled him in his opposition to our civilization and laws.

If the Indians' cause has been properly presented, the captives' defense clearly stated, and the general store of information regarding vanishing types increased, I shall be satisfied.

I desire to acknowledge valuable suggestions from Maj. Charles Taylor, Fort Sill, Oklahoma; Dr. J. M. Greenwood, Kansas City, Missouri, and President David R. Boyd, of the University of Oklahoma.

I especially desire in this connection to say that without the kindly advice and assistance of President Theodore Roosevelt this book could not have been written.

Doesn't translate well from the early 20th century. As autobiography, it's very sparse, only 73 pages. Offers only the briefest look at this violent leader.

Geronimo survived to tell this, that is the most amazing part...

This is a wonderful book and is very interesting to learn so much about Geronimo's life and personality. A great read for for junior high kids.

My daughter was doing a school report on Geronimo and the Apache Indians. This little book proved to be both interesting and informative. A little hard to understand for a fourth grader, but she really enjoyed the fact that she was reading the written word of a historical figure.
