About the Author

Geronimo (Mescalero-Chiricahua: Goyaalé "one who yawns"; June 16, 1829 – February 17, 1909) was a Native American chief of the Chiricahua Apache who fought against Mexico and the United States for their expansion into Apache tribal lands for decades during the Apache Wars.Legend has it that"Geronimo" was the name given to him during a Mexican scrimmage
After an attack by a company of Mexican soldiers killed many members of his family in 1858, Geronimo joined revenge attacks on the Mexicans. During his service as a war chief, Geronimo was notorious for consistently urging raids and war upon Mexican Provinces and their various towns, and later against American locations across Arizona, New Mexico, and western Texas.

In 1886 Geronimo surrendered to U.S. authorities after a lengthy pursuit. As a prisoner of war in old age he became a celebrity and appeared in fairs but was never allowed to return to the land of his birth. He later regretted his surrender and claimed the conditions he made had been ignored. Geronimo died in 1909 after being thrown from his horse.

I really enjoyed reading this mixture of a verbal account from the great Chief of the Apaches along with actual archaeological info about the origin of the Apaches. It was exciting, blunt and sad, but real history. It is an eyeopener and made me pause to think about how our country expanded at the expense of so many innocent American Indians.

To hear the plight of the Apaches in the words of the Nation's greatest leader Geronimo is both stunning and humbling. The man spoke in simple terms and told it as he saw it. It was not a pretty picture, but it is a snapshot of history that should be mandatory reading for every serious student of history. It moved me.

I found this ebook to be very disjointed and unorganized. I thought the information was intriguing and insightful to the Apache life but I could not read it more than a few minutes before I had to move on to another book. Although the book is a short read I expected better.
