Amazon.com description: Product Description: TWO OF AMERICAN HISTORY'S MOST BRILLIANT WARRIORS-AND FIERCEST ENEMIES-COME ALIVE "An invaluable addition to western history."-Evan Connell, author of Son of the Morning Star "Written like fine historical fiction, but substantial, substantive, enlightening."-Kirkus Reviews This captivating dual biography chronicles the lives and battles of two of America's most famous warriors, the legendary Apache shaman, Geronimo, and the nation's most successful Indian fighter, General George Crook. Artfully constructed from their own words, as well as newspaper accounts and the firsthand recollections of those who fought with-and against-them, here is a compelling and uniquely evenhanded account of the intriguing men at the center of one of American history's most definitive, longest-running struggles-the infamous Apache Wars. Born to defend their respective cultures-and destined to destroy each other in the process-the vengeful, spiritually powerful Indian warrior and the remorseless, consummate professional officer are inextricably bound to each other in the fabric of our country, and in the hearts of their peoples.
