The white man had burned their land, raped their women, and slaughtered their children.  He had made them a nation of slaves, and those he could not enslave, he promised to destroy.  The Apache had one hope: vengeance.

Out of the scattered remnants of the Apache tribes rose a man whose cunning, ferocity, and genuis for warfare would make him their leader in a last tragic struggle for survival.  The Apache gave him their arms, their strength, and their absolute devotion.  The white man gave him his name: Geronimo!

About the author (1990)

Forrest Carter is best known for his autobiographical work, The Education of Little Tree (1976). Carter was orphaned at the age of ten and raised by his grandfather. In the Education of Little Tree, he wrote of his happy childhood in the isolated woods of the Tennesee Hill Country and lovingly recalls his grandfather who gave him a unique education based heavily on his Cherokee heritage. Carter once estimated that he never spent more than six months in a formal educational setting. Other notable works by Forrest Carter are The Rebel Outlaw, Josey Wales (1973), and Cry Geronimo (1980). The Rebel Outlaw, Josey Wales was purchased by Clint Eastwood, who produced and starred in the movie adaptation of the work in 1976.
