Description

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'.
