Read full description of the books:
A very detailed but readable account of the Apache wars. The author must have a done an incredible research job. It's amazing to think Geronimo and his tiny band of just thirty-four including women and children could avoid capture for so long and it took 5,000 US soldiers and a similar number of Mexican troops to finally track them down.
As Buffe Sainte Marie sang in "Now that the buffalo are gone" even when Germany was defeated (in the world wars of the last century) they were allowed to keep their land but not so Native American tribes. The final injustice was to lie to the Apache that they could rejoin their families in exile in Florida only for the men to be kept separate from them for several years and for their children to be sent north away from both parents for schooling. Though since there was great pressure from the settlers in Arizona, who had helped themselves to the Apache's land, to exterminate all of them, it was something of an achievement by the standards of the day that they weren't all executed and those who survived long enough were eventually allowed to settle in Indian territory in modern day Oklahoma.
