Description


A giant figure in the history of frontier America

Geronimo is the Mexican name for Goyathlay, the Chiricahua Apache military leader, one of the distinguished leaders from the indigenous Indian tribes of North America who attempted to hold back the inexorable tide of 'white' encroachment into their lands during the nineteenth century. In this book Geronimo tells his own story across time. As with virtually all other Indian leaders his efforts were ultimately hopeless and the destruction of the Apache way of life was inevitable. Whilst considered culturally 'savage, ' Geronimo has justifiably been accorded a level of fame given only to those who heroically fight against overwhelming odds. This does not make his fate any the less tragic: ranging through Mexican provinces, Arizona, New Mexico and western Texas, Geronimo and his braves fought an effective hit and run campaign, that gave both Mexican and US forces a run for their money, until his resistance was finally worn down and he was compelled to surrender to forces under General Nelson Miles. Available in softcover and hardcover with dust jacket.
