My opinion is Geronimo is the greatest American hero ever. I've enjoyed reading about the Chiricahua, Chokonen & other Apache groups. My view is the Apache won many battles by their superior intelligence.
While I could not read books like Bury My Heart At Wounded Knee, I can enjoy reading about Apache living and struggles. While in the military, I was lucky enough to spend some time in Arizona, and felt very comfortable there.
While the most educated person in my family with two degrees and three certifications, I only speak English. N. Cochise, the grandson of Cochise, could speak Apache, English, Spanish and many dialects. He wrote a book in English and learned to fly an airplane. I admire all those Apaches that have been written about, even those who were not written about. All contributed.
