Here is one of the most extraordinary and invaluable documents in the annals of Native American history: the authentic testament of a remarkable war shaman who, for several years, held off both Mexico and the United States in fierce defense of Apache lands.

During 1905 and 1906, Geronimo, the legendary Apache warrior and honorary war chief, dictated his story through a native interpreter to S. M. Barrett, then superintendent of schools in Lawton, Oklahoma. As Geronimo was by then a prisoner of war, Barrett had to appeal all the way up the chain of command to President Teddy Roosevelt for permission to record the words of the Indian outlaw.

Geronimo came to each interview knowing exactly what he wanted to cover, beginning with the telling of the Apache creation story. When, at the end of the first session, Barrett posed a question, the only answer he received was a pronouncement: Write what I have spoken. Download and start listening now!

    " Overall, this book was pretty weak. I've read plenty of better memoirs from lesser warriors. I'm still glad I read it, though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dani Golomb | 1/30/2012

    " I liked the end of this a lot more than the beginning. I loved the chapter on when Geronimo goes to the World's Fair. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John | 8/5/2011

    " This is the best autobiography that I have ever read! Very interesting, I particularly enjoyed his experiences at the World Fair. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tim | 6/10/2010

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Petter Nordal | 11/20/2009

    " This was actually the edition I read. The notes by Turner are exellent. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jack Peltier | 8/8/2009

    " Quite extraordinary to get a glimpse into the life of Geronimo. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Petter Nordal | 7/27/2009

    " This is a tremendous book, whether you know anything about Geronimo or not. He dictated the book, beginning at the beginning of time, and going right through his imprisonment and exposition at the St. Louis World's Fair. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jill | 5/11/2009

    " Very interesting. This is Geronimo's own story as told by himself. It is a very short book, but gives a lot of insight on the Apache Warrior Chief. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michelle | 6/13/2008

    " I enjoyed reading this book, but I don't think it improved my image of the Apaches. It's interesting to hear his side of things, but I think I will need to know more about the era and other people's points of view. "
