Thanks for your query and I apologize for the slow response as I've been dealing with some family health issues and have been out of pocket for the last four weeks. No, I haven't done a book on Geronimo. You've read all that are in print as of now, though I am working on one on Custer's Last Stand. It should be out next year as I return the first three Lomax to print through Wild Horse Press. The Demise of Billy the Kid has just returned to print and I've been doing page proofs on Redemption, which should be out later this year. Best to you and I will respond quicker to future requests.
