The Life of Geronimo
Geronimo — born Goyathlay — was a Chiricuaha Apache who fought for his people for more than 30 years. His determination to keep the Apache freely living in their ancestral homeland made him the last Native American to surrender to the United States government. Although he did not succeed in his aim of retaining his people's land, Geronimo was hailed as a hero by the Apache. Today, his bravery is remembered even by non-Natives. Historical black-and-white photographs, alongside accessible text, give young readers a glimpse into the life of this incredible freedom fighter.
