Geronimo and the Apache Resistance by Neil Goodwin( Visual )

32 editions published between 1988 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,718 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Descendants of legendary Native American leader Geronimo tell the story of a half-century of war, displacement, confinement, and finally resistance that ended with the decimation of the Chiricahua Apaches and the loss of their traditional homeland in the Southwest. Geronimo is revealed as a shrewd leader, formidable fighter, and poetic shaman--dedicated to a crusade to keep his ancestral land, repeatedly defying and eluding federal authorities. When the government finally forced his surrender in 1886, the Apaches were prisoners, moved to reservations in Florida and later Oklahoma. Their homeland was never returned to them. The film tells an unpleasant story of cruelty, prejudice, and betrayal, and of a tragic collision of two civilizations, each with startlingly different views of one another

The Apache diaries : a father-son journey by Grenville Goodwin( Book )

12 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 1,062 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The surrender of Geronimo in 1886 did not mark the end of Apache resistance to white encroachment. Over the next four decades, rumors persisted about a band of "wild" Apaches in the Sierra Madre. Who were these reclusive Apaches? In 1930 anthropologist Grenville Goodwin headed south to find out. Accompanying him were guides who had often encountered the Apaches, and as Goodwin searched out abandoned campsites, the Apaches almost certainly were aware of his every move." "Goodwin's journals chronicling his epic search have been edited and annotated by his son, Neil, who was born three months before his father's tragic death at the age of thirty-three. Neil Goodwin uses the journals to engage in a dialogue with the father he never knew. Retracing his father's journeys, Neil juxtaposes his own journal entries with his father's."--Jacket
