Overview

Probably one of the most famous of all American Indians, Geronimo is conceived of either as an extreme martyr or an extreme villain. In this addition to the Signature Books, Jim Kjelgaard given a compassionate, but objective picture of the warring Apache, who seeing his wife and children slaughtered by, white invaders, dedicated his life to activating the warrior spirit with which he was endowed. Without sacrificing details of Geronimo's military exploits, this biography gives a well rounded impression of the man himself, and achieves a vivid note of pathos in its depiction of the Chief's waning years as prisoner on a reservation. A fair and arresting biography of an American of distinguished intelligence, courage, and initiative.
