Bloodthirsty savage or spiritual leader of a great race? Those are the questions that American Indian expert Debo sets out to answer, and like the character of Geronimo himself the findings are not always what you would expect. The most famous Apache of all time was a complex character who loved nothing better than collecting scalps, but also showed a strong vein of humanity not only towards his own people but also to the white men who persecuted and lied to him. He was in turns shrewd and naive, aggressive and gentle, and a warrior almost without equal. Debo's biography reveals many facets of the great man that have previously been clouded in obscurity, and it demolishes myths that some writers have presented as fact. In order to unearth the truth about this enigmatic figure she has drawn on sources both written and oral, and found that Geronimo himself didn't always know as much about his own past as he thought he did. A strongly humane read. (Kirkus UK)
On 5 September 1886, America rejoiced as the news flashed from the Southwest that the Apache war leader Geronimo had surrendered to Brigadier General Nelson A. Miles. With Geronimo, at the time of his surrender, were Chief Naiche - son of the great Cochise - 16 other warriors, 14 women and 6 children. It had taken a force of 5,000 regular army troops and a series of false promises to capture the band. Here is an enthralling narrative of revenge and raids, of escape, pursuit and uneasy peace. It is also a powerful and sympathetic portrait of Geronimo - one of the greatest, most feared and most elusive of Indian leaders - a man who became known as 'the tiger of the human race'.
