Geronimo: Apache Renegade by George Sullivan is a well-written and engaging biography for early teen readers. Sullivan neither glorifies nor diminishes Geronimo’s life of savage exploits, which eventually made him a celebrity in his elderly years and ultimately contributed to his ongoing legend. Furthermore, he does a nice job of conveying how Geronimo’s choices and actions were largely a result of the adverse historical circumstances wrought upon the Apaches’ way of life by Western expansion.

This is a middle-graders book nominally on the life of Geronimo, one of the most famous Native Americans. With information of his life as told to the writer through a translator, Geronimo gives his version of the Apache-white conflicts. There are sidebars about the Apache way of life although some of the information does not agree with other sources and about other individuals. Stiff this is a fair introduction to the Apache for middle shoolers.

I know this book was written for younger folk learning the history of Geronimo, but I quite liked it. I found it educational, fair, and it provided enough account without going into day by day detail that could become monotonous and boring. It was easy to read and absorbable. Simple ... medium simple and for me a good read. Maybe one day I'll read the big boy version but for now, I feel satisfied.

I gave up on it. Nice layout, sweet pictures, nice story but the dates are ALL OVER THE PLACE. They talk about the Mexicans killing his wife and kids in 1951, and then discuss the Mexican-American war, 1948.

Then Cochise is shot and killed, in a cowardly ambush by soldiers. Two chapters down, they're dealing with Cochise to visit his camp. Wha?
