"Tucson librarian and author, Mary Stout, wisely sets a sympathetic tone by first conveying facts about Geronimo's early life as well as the life ways of the Apache culture, thereby creating a world in which Geronimo's actions can be more readily seen as part of a lifestyle disrupted by "foreign" forces. A much less stereotypical image thus emerges in this lengthy and thoughtfully written account for young adults. Geronimo's life as an Apache warrior is recounted in detail. Beyond his capture and incarceration, this biography concludes with events which created an aura of celebrity surrounding him. As part of the publisher's biography series designed primarily for the school and library market, this work includes chapter footnotes, a glossary, selected bibliography (which includes electronic resources,) and an index." - Southwest Books of the Year
