Sintesi dell'editore

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".

"Bottino's matter-of-fact, unvoiced presentation is a good match for the text. He sounds like a tired 75+-year-old-man reflecting on his life." ( KLIATT)

Historically fake.

Fake fake fake
In addition boring, inaccurate and mises important data on the life of Gerónimo like he was Catholic and spoke Spanish

With caution

I would always air with a lot of caution when it comes to translation and interpretation from a colonial agenda. There is a very clear and racist bias from the author of this translation as one Mater of fact for euro-centric ideology as being superior to native world views.

Fascinating....

description of the final surrender of the Indian to the tidal wave of settlers. The govt then parades him around the country as a sort of side show Bob.

Sad But Great Story

This story by Geronimo told in his own words was a sad story for what the Mexicans and White Man did to the whole Apache Nation. I tend to believe Geronimo and the Indians on how they were treated very unjustly, The white man was the one who encroached on their land and stole it from them, and then put them on reservations. They broke almost every treaty they made with the Indians. The only bad thing about this audiobook is the narrating, not very good. Recommended to everyone who is interested in Native American History.

Primary source/drab reader

Interesting perspective from an active participant of that era full of anecdotal insights, tribal knowledge and wisdom, and more. The reader, however, clearly could not have cared less about his performance. It’s drab, monotone, and robotic.

Very interesting

After reading other remarks on this book, I was unsure whether or not I wanted to listen to it, but am now glad that I did. There are some ridiculous reviews that claim this book to be racist and “euro centric” which must have been written by someone who has been educated beyond their intelligence. This book was dictated by the legendary Geronimo, if you cannot handle his uneducated wisdom, and are offended that bad things have happened in history then you won’t like this book. If you can understand that this was the Indians side of the story (which is probably less embellished) and can take it at face value, you will probably enjoy this book. There are some great insights into the Apache culture that you won’t get anywhere else.

In Geronimo’s Own Words

This book was written because Geronimo had wanted for us to hear his journey in his own words, and the. To judge for ourselves if he and his tribe had been treated fairly and as promised. The importance of books like this cannot be underestimated. I’m so glad it was written and produced. I’m horrified by how they were so blatantly mislead over and over. I recommend that you read and/or listen to this, and then find new ways to do what you can to open up authentic opportunities for all people. We can’t change the past, but we can decide not to repeat it.

A different world.

Fascinating reflection and recounting of a poignant time in our history and of a man whose name and life have come to symbolize the plight of native Americans.
