Geronimo and the Apache Resistance by Neil Goodwin( Visual )

31 editions published between 1988 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,443 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 )

14 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 1,140 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

With the discovery of gold in California in 1849, fortune hunters poured into the western United States so fast that California was added to the union as a state in 1850. But the rich and expansive territory of California was a whole continent away from the existing seat of government and industry in the United States. This is the story of the completion of the transcontinental railroad which reduced the cross-country trip from several months to just nine and one half days, and meant for the first time that the United States was truly united

Geronimo and the Apache Resistance( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For decades in the 19th century, Apache tribes resisted the westward advance of the pioneers and the threat they posed to traditional ways of life. Fighting the longest was Geronimo--one of the most famous, feared, and misunderstood Native American warriors in history. Geronimo and the Apache Resistance, from the PBS American Experience collection, separates myth from reality in the tragic collision of two cultures with dramatically different views of the world--and of each other. It is an illumination of the mysteries of Apache power that made them so terrifying in battle yet so skillful in escaping disaster. In the words of the descendants of those Apaches, the film provides the long-awaited chance to tell their story as it has never been told

La 4e de couverture indique : " Dans les années 1920, un peuple de fugitifs, des Apaches chiricahuas, vit encore caché dans la Sierra Madre, au nord du Mexique. Il est plus à contre-courant de l'histoire que ne l'était Geronimo lors de sa reddition en 1886. En 1927, la rumeur enfle : il se confirme que des groupes apaches se déplacent en toute liberté mais surtout, on vient d'apprendre qu'ils ont enlevé un enfant Mexicain après avoir tué ses parents. La chasse aux derniers Chiricahuas libres va bientôt être rouverte. L'anthropologue Grenville Goodwin, qui à ce moment travaille à la réserve de Fort Apache, se lance dans une quête passionnée sur leurs traces, à la découverte des derniers camps. Durant deux expéditions passées à sillonner les contrées sauvages il rédige un journal que son fils Neil, qui n'a jamais connu son père, découvrira en 1962. Dès 1976, Neil, à son tour, prend le chemin des pistes de l'Arizona et des sierras mexicaines. Il en fait aussi un journal. D'un journal à l'autre, père et fils font écho à toute une série d'histoires, à l'Histoire. De ses voyages, Neil acquiert la conviction que, de nos jours, des descendants de ces Apaches se cachent au Mexique parmi d'autres tribus. Autant hallucinants que réels, les deux journaux nous plongent dans cette aventure à peine croyable où planent l'ombre des Chiricahuas, derniers guerriers insaisissables, invisibles et silencieux, maraudant comme des fantômes dans les grands espaces où jadis ils régnaient en maîtres"
