Summary

For a quarter century—1861 to 1886—the U.S. military attempted to subjugate one of the largest Indian tribes of what is today the American Southwest. The Apache Wars is the gripping tale of how thanks to leaders such as Victorio and Geronimo, the Apache Indians held out longer than any other major U.S. tribe. This book also tells of how the surrender of Geronimo in 1886 ultimately forced the final free Apache bands to settle on government reservations.
