Recounts the days of the Indian wars when the U.S. Cavalry repeatedly tried to subdue the great warriors led by Cochise and, later, Geronimo

Blackwell North Amer
Of the many tales of conflict and warfare between the U.S. government and the Indian tribes, perhaps none is more dramatic or revealing than the story of the Apache wars. Those wars were the final episode in the U.S. government's subjugation of the indigenous peoples; the surrender of Geronimo in 1886 effectively ended the Indian wars.

I though this book was fun, but I could not finish it because it was making me too sad. I made it about 3/4 of the way through and just felt like reading about how Apaches were treated was hurting my heart to much. I loved the history about Arizona. The book bounces around a lot, and so it is kind of hard to keep up with the writing. The whole thing is really kind of sad and disgusting and breaks my heart to think people could treat other people like they do, but alas it is the world we live in.
