📒The Apache Wars ✍ Paul Andrew Hutton
✏The Apache Wars Book Summary : In the tradition of Empire of the Summer Moon, a stunningly vivid historical account of the manhunt for Geronimo and the 25-year Apache struggle for their homeland. They called him Mickey Free. His kidnapping started the longest war in American history, and both sides--the Apaches and the white invaders—blamed him for it. A mixed-blood warrior who moved uneasily between the worlds of the Apaches and the American soldiers, he was never trusted by either but desperately needed by both. He was the only man Geronimo ever feared. He played a pivotal role in this long war for the desert Southwest from its beginning in 1861 until its end in 1890 with his pursuit of the renegade scout, Apache Kid. In this sprawling, monumental work, Paul Hutton unfolds over two decades of the last war for the West through the eyes of the men and women who lived it. This is Mickey Free's story, but also the story of his contemporaries: the great Apache leaders Mangas Coloradas, Cochise, and Victorio; the soldiers Kit Carson, O. O. Howard, George Crook, and Nelson Miles; the scouts and frontiersmen Al Sieber, Tom Horn, Tom Jeffords, and Texas John Slaughter; the great White Mountain scout Alchesay and the Apache female warrior Lozen; the fierce Apache warrior Geronimo; and the Apache Kid. These lives shaped the violent history of the deserts and mountains of the Southwestern borderlands--a bleak and unforgiving world where a people would make a final, bloody stand against an American war machine bent on their destruction.
📒Once They Moved Like The Wind Cochise Geronimo ✍ David Roberts
✏ONCE THEY MOVED LIKE THE WIND COCHISE GERONIMO Book Summary : During the westward settlement, for more than twenty years Apache tribes eluded both US and Mexican armies, and by 1886 an estimated 9,000 armed men were in pursuit. Roberts (Deborah: A Wilderness Narrative) presents a moving account of the end of the Indian Wars in the Southwest. He portrays the great Apache leaders—Cochise, Nana, Juh, Geronimo, the woman warrior Lozen—and U.S. generals George Crock and Nelson Miles. Drawing on contemporary American and Mexican sources, he weaves a somber story of treachery and misunderstanding. After Geronimo's surrender in 1886, the Apaches were sent to Florida, then to Alabama where many succumbed to malaria, tuberculosis and malnutrition and finally in 1894 to Oklahoma, remaining prisoners of war until 1913. The book is history at its most engrossing. —Publishers Weekly
📒The Apache Wars ✍ Joseph C. Jastrzembski
✏The Apache Wars Book Summary : The Apache are perhaps most noted for such fierce leaders as Cochise and Geronimo. Their name, which comes from the Yuma Indian word for fighting men, bears that out. The Apache tribe is composed of six regional groups - Western Apache, Chiricahua, Mescalero, Jicarilla, Lipan, and Kiowa Apache.
📒Geronimo And The End Of The Apache Wars ✍ Charles Leland Sonnichsen
✏Geronimo and the End of the Apache Wars Book Summary : After prolonged resistance against tremendous odds, Geronimo, the Apache shaman and war leader, and Naiche, the hereditary Chiricahua chief, surrendered to General Nelson A. Miles near the Mexican border on September 4, 1886. It was the beginning of a new day for white settlers in the Southwest and of bitter exile for the Indians. In Geronimo and the End of the Apache Wars Lieutenant Charles B. Gatewood, an emissary of General Miles, describes in vivid circumstantial detail his role in the final capture of Geronimo at Skeleton Canyon. Gatewood offers many intimate glimpses of the Apache chief in an important account published for the first time in this collection. Another first-person narration is by Samuel E. Kenoi, who was ten years old when Geronimo went on his last warpath. A Chiricahua Apache, Kenoi recalls the removal of his people to Florida after the surrender. In other colorful chapters Edwin R. Sweeney writes about the 1851 raid of the Mexican army that killed Geronmio's mother, wife, and children; and Albert E. Wratten relates the life of his father, George Wratten, a government scout, superintendent on three reservations, and defender of the rights of the Apaches.
📒Massacre On The Lordsburg Road ✍ Marc Simmons
✏Massacre On The Lordsburg Road Book Summary : In the spring of 1883 Judge Hamilton C. McComas and his family were attacked by Apaches on a desolate road in New Mexico Territory. The judge and his wife were killed, and their six-year-old son, Charles, was kidnapped. Although America's reaction to the attack was intense and the search for the missing child as highly publicized as the later Lindbergh kidnapping, little was known or understood at the time about why or how the tragedy had occurred. Marc Simmons sheds the first light on the McComas family's fatal path and gives the first complete picture of circumstances surrounding this tragic event. From long-buried fragments, Simmons reconstructs the events of that fateful day, as well as the U.S. Army's first legal "hot pursuit" of an Apache raiding party into Mexico that followed. The puzzle of why a reputably wise and able man would lead his family into such a fatal predicament and the ironic circumstance of young Charles McComas's death at the hands of U.S. troops illustrate that past events were as complex and sometimes as confusing as those today.
📒Indeh ✍ Ethan Hawke
✏Indeh Book Summary : INSTANT #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER The year is 1872. The place, the Apache nations, a region torn apart by decades of war. The people, like Goyahkla, lose his family and everything he loves. After having a vision, the young Goyahkla approaches the Apache leader Cochise, and the entire Apache nation, to lead an attack against the Mexican village of Azripe. It is this wild display of courage that transforms the young brave Goyakhla into the Native American hero Geronimo. But the war wages on. As they battle their enemies, lose loved ones, and desperately cling on to their land and culture, they would utter, "Indeh," or "the dead." When it looks like lasting peace has been reached, it seems like the war is over. Or is it? INDEH captures the deeply rich narrative of two nations at war-as told through the eyes of Naiches and Geronimo-who then try to find peace and forgiveness. INDEH not only paints a picture of some of the most magnificent characters in the history of our country, but it also reveals the spiritual and emotional cost of the Apache Wars. Based on exhaustive research, INDEH offers a remarkable glimpse into the raw themes of cultural differences, the horrors of war, the search for peace, and, ultimately, retribution. The Apache left an indelible mark on our perceptions about the American West, and INDEH shows us why.
