Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: In 1905, the legendary Apache "renegade" warrior offered (for payment) to tell S.M. Barrett the "whole story of his life." Obtaining permission from the military officers, who had held Geronimo prisoner for twenty years, was no easy task. To his captors, Geronimo was the enemy who had inflicted brutal death and terror in two nations-he did not deserve the attention of the public. Only by order of President Theodore Roosevelt was permission granted.Given the name "Geronimo" by Mexican soldiers (reason unclear), the Bedonkohe Apache Goyathlay eluded death of capture by the armies of two nations for over thirty years. His career of revenge against all Mexicans began in retalliation for the slaughter of his widowed mother, his young wife, and his three children by Mexican troops. When his homeland became a part of the United States, he discovered new enemies among the officers of the U.S. Army, especially after the murder of the Chiricahua chief Mangas Coloradas, in custody after approaching under a flag of truce. In telling his story, Geronimo spares no words in condemnation of the treachery and "lies" of his captors-General Nelson A. Miles in particular (comments from which his transcriber Barrett is judicious in dissassociating himself). Geronimo's own narrative is supplemented by explanatory chapters in the words of the editor and by contemporary official documents bearing on his story. Together it makes for compelling reading, shedding light on the exploits of a major historical figure. Codice inventario libreria

Riassunto: In 1905, the legendary Apache “renegade” warrior offered (for payment) to tell S.M. Barrett the “whole story of his life.” Obtaining permission from the military officers, who had held Geronimo prisoner for twenty years, was no easy task. To his captors, Geronimo was the enemy who had inflicted brutal death and terror in two nations—he did not deserve the attention of the public. Only by order of President Theodore Roosevelt was permission granted. Given the name “Geronimo” by Mexican soldiers (reason unclear), the Bedonkohe Apache Goyathlay eluded death of capture by the armies of two nations for over thirty years. His career of revenge against all Mexicans began in retalliation for the slaughter of his widowed mother, his young wife, and his three children by Mexican troops. When his homeland became a part of the United States, he discovered new enemies among the officers of the U.S. Army, especially after the murder of the Chiricahua chief Mangas Coloradas, in custody after approaching under a flag of truce. In telling his story, Geronimo spares no words in condemnation of the treachery and “lies” of his captors—General Nelson A. Miles in particular (comments from which his transcriber Barrett is judicious in dissassociating himself). Geronimo's own narrative is supplemented by explanatory chapters in the words of the editor and by contemporary official documents bearing on his story.
