later known as Geronimo. This well-trod path is written in short sections, combining
elements of native culture wth the mis-treatment of a dwindling Indian nation.
Some of it is broken up by period photographs which add to the poignancy of the story
but this book steers well away from the conventional 'noble savage'concept.
For the readers familiar with the themes of western expansion there is nothing new here,
but for the first time enquirer, this is a treasure house of stories describing the
dreadful decline of the Apaches.
The Apache committed many atrocities in white mans eyes and the whites committed many war crimes against the Apache, when Geronimo was 30yrs it was 1858 and all was peace, he went south to Old Mexico to trade, we stopped at Kas-ki-yeh for several days outside the city, everyday we went to trade leaving a small guard, one day Mexican troops from another town had attacked our camp, killed the warriors guarding, took our ponies and arms and killed many women and children, I found my mother, wife and three children were killed, we were left with eighty warriors and no supplies so we returned to Arizona and I vowed vengeange
Mangus Colorado our chief called a council and we all voted war against the Maexicans, I was to get other tribes to join us, I went to Cochise the chief of the Chiricahua and stated my case, they promised to help, the chief of the Nedi Apaches, Whoa also offered to help, it was 1859 and the three tribes met on the Mexican border to go on the warpath, their families hidden, nobody was mounted, eight men came out from the city to talk, we scalped them hoping to draw the troops out, a terrible few days of battle followed and Geronimo was made War Chief of all the Apache, there follows many descriptions of attacks against the white man by Indians with many being killed
To become an Apache warrior a boy has to go four times on the warpath and act as a servant but speaking to no one, if he does all as required the council will make him a warrior, when we first saw the white man we traded with him, after a year some trouble arose and we went on the warpath, going to a council at Fort Bowie we were attacked most were killed or captured, I managed to escape, the story continues during Geronimos flight and the neverending pursuit by the soldiers, the many peace treaties made and the many treaties broken
A good insight into the life of the famous Apache Geronimo, well written and a good read
If this book is correct and I feel that it is then the amazing Geronimo was a fairly quiet and unassuming man who went to war as we think of it as he was let down so often.
Really interesting and well worth a read.
