Format: Paperback
Reading THE EDUCATION OF LITTLE TREE prompted me to find other Forrest Carter works. Through Amazon, I discovered the Josey Wales books (terrific). References to Geronimo in those books peaked my interest about this fascinating historical figure, so I ordered WATCH FOR ME ON THE MOUNTAIN. It did not disappoint. Though Carter takes liberties with the story by including personal details about Geronimo which he could not know--thus making it a fictional work--there is a symmetry in his use of history and folklore which is captivating. He tells a great story, and if you are the least bit interested in the spirituality and mysticism that defined this man's life, you will find this book fascinating. Geronimo lived between the earthly and spiritual worlds, giving him great powers which he used to enable the Apache to ward off slavery and death,against huge odds, for twenty years longer than seemed possible. Moving, sad and inspiring, this book brings about heightened appreciation for Native American spirituality and resillency.

I read Watch for Me on the Mountain as a young girl, and twelve years later this book is still one I recommend to friends. Forrest Carter's powerful descriptions of scenery and happenings filled my mind with visions of Geronimo and his people, the magnificent Apaches. I believe it is impossible to read his work and not walk away without a changed perception of how brutal the European settlers truly were, and what tenacity the Native Americans had to stay alive and free. Even now I regard Watch for Me on the Mountain as one of the most eye opening historical fictions I've ever read. Now I recommend it to you... enjoy.

Rarely do you find an entertaining book that is so educational and spiritual at the same time. I couldn't put the book down. It moved me to tears and emotions that rarely a book can do.

Format: Paperback
This is a fascinating book, showing what was the spirit of Indians, through this war chaman that Geronimo actually was. It is a deep initiatic story, which could give birth to the best movie scenario about Indians. It changes forever the idea we have about Indians and gives us keys on our own spiritual path. I rate it on the 5 best books I read in my life, and I've read thousands, being a book reviewer in a French magazine.Read this !

I've read thousands of books in my 40-odd years and will sometimes realize, halfway through a new paperback, that I've already read it. Such a mistake could never be made with "Watch for Me on the Mountain." It wrenches your heart and your gut, forever etching in your mind scenes and people from long ago. It lifted me up, filled me with joy, and I cannot recommend it highly enough. One of my top five all-time favorites.
