Beschreibung

Geronimo and Gen. George Crook were born to destroy one another. Their bitter struggle during the Apache wars -- the last and longest running of the North American Indian wars -- was one of the most dramatic confrontations in the history of the American West. Geronimo, an Apache shaman, made a religion of revenge and fought on long past hope and reason, ultimately becoming both the whites' most hated foe and a romanticized symbol of Indian resistance. Crook, the nation's most successful Indian fighter, combined a paradoxical sympathy with a relentless antipathy, becoming both the Apaches' best friend and their worst enemy. Recounting the overlapping stories from both perspectives, Peter Aleshire brilliantly illuminates this legendary battle of wills.-- Pairing Geronimo and Crook provides a fresh angle on a popular subject-- The Apache wars are one of the most enduring subjects of interest in Native American history
