Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
In diesem Buch gelingt es der Autorin sehr gut, Geronimo, oder Goyathlay, wie er von seinen Leuten genannt wurde zu charakterisieren...auch wenn dies sicher keine leichte Aufgabe war. Immerhin gibt es keine Aufzeichnungen darüber, wie Geronimos Kindheit und Jugend verlief, viele Dinge lassen sich nur vermuten, werden aus Erzählungen anderer Apachen und deren Erinnerungen ergänzt. Die Biographie eines Mannes, dessen Volk keine schriftlichen Aufzeichnungen kannte und von dem wir viele Dinge nur aus den Berichten seiner mexikanischen und amerikanischen Gegner wissen.
Dennoch äußerst gelungen, weil Angie Debo es versteht, aus den ihr zur Verfügung stehenden Quellen zu schöpfen und viele Kontakte zu Menschen herstellte, die sich lange und intensiv mit der Geschichte der Apachen auseinandergesetzt haben und die ihr viele wichtige Informationen zur Verfügung stellten.
Sehr ausführlich wird auch Geronimos "spätes" Leben, als Kriegsgefangener der Vereinigten Staaten behandelt, sehr deutlich werden die Fehler und Versäumnisse der damaligen Offiziellen und Verantwortlichen dargestellt.
Da ich bereits viele der Bücher, die Angie Debo als Vorlage dienten, kenne/ gelesen habe, konnte ich diesem Werk zwar nicht wirklich neue Informationen entnehmen, betrachte es aber als ziemlich gut gelungene Zusammenfassung, vielleicht auch als einen der besten "Einstiege" ins Thema, will man einmal etwas über die "wirklichen" Apachen erfahren, weit ab von Karl May!
Ein sehr ausgewogenes Werk, lesenswert...empfehlenswert!

Von Ein Kunde am 29. November 1997
Format: Taschenbuch
Ms. Debo has presented a complete analysis of the man Geronimo, from both sides of the Apache conflict. She deals with the prejedice of the day as well as the myths and legends of the time. I was well informed by her conclusions and believe the concepts she presented were both truthful and informative.

Fair, thorough, and easy to read 24. April 2005
Von David Graham - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Books commonly do not live up to the hype they receive, so when I read comments about this one being, "the only definitive book on this notable Indian" and others to that effect, I was initially skeptical. Then I read the book and found myself agreeing with the praise heaped on it, for Debo did indeed write a balanced and readable account of both Geronimo and the Apache, not to mention various parties from the U.S.A. who dealt with them (such as those in the Department of the Interior or army figures such as General Crook or Britton Davis), all based on years of careful research, personal interviews and extensive correspondance. The result is a book that gives a little of everything pertaining to Apache life in general and Geronimo and his contemporaries in particular. She writes with interest about past Apache history, Apache customs (such as the Dance of the Mountain Spirits), geographical distribution of various factions within the tribe, and the lives of those associated with Geronimo such as Cochise, Mangas Coloradas, Victorio, his wives, his sisters, Naiche, Nana, or Loco, to name but a few. Moreover, she writes of the division of opinion and lifestyle within the Apache themselves with respect to living on reservations and raiding. The raiding and killing done by Geronimo and other Apache hostiles, coupled with the duplicity and injustice of the U.S. government, ultimately brought disaster on many of the peaceful, productive Apache. The years of imprisonment and exile following Geronimo's capture show the great forbearance of the Apache, along with the difficulties faced by all parties in trying to preserve the Apache way of life while at the same time trying to become incorporated into mainstream American society.

Geronimo himself is treated fairly and shown in all his complexities. The reader is neither given the hero worship type biography nor the spiteful villain approach, but rather a temperate account of a strong, courageous, independent, yet flawed human who both fought for his people and yet brought disaster to them as well. As such, the man's humanity is revealed: his kindness to children and relatives, his good work ethic (even in old age), his fidelity to justice as he saw it, his courage in battle, his deeply religious nature, and willingness to endure hardship are just as evident as are his hatred towards Mexicans, weakness for alcohol, and willingness to murder and steal. Photographs are liberally sprinkled throughout the text, providing excellent visual aids.

I found Debo's writing to be neither overly sentimental nor dry as dust. She obviously took great interest in her subject and from time to time placed personal comments in the text or footnotes which give the reader the feeling that they are receiving a STORY and not merely a dry academic treatise. This is definitely a five-star book and I read it with great interest.

A Quality Bio on a Fascinating Character 23. September 2001
Von doomsdayer520 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This biography truly reveals the man behind the myth. Geronimo has had a reputation as either a bloodthirsty, pitiless scalp hunter (the conservative view), or as a divinely-guided leader trying desperately to save his people from destruction (the romantic view). Both of these are partially correct, but neither gives any indication of Geronimo as a human being, and that's what Debo does ably in this book. Debo compiles all the information available to give an impressively detailed portrait of the man's life, and uncovers many aspects of his personality, both good and bad. So we get the predicted praise for his bravery and honesty; but the author is not afraid to criticize his ill temper, vindictiveness, and lack of eloquence.
While the focus remains on Geronimo himself, this book also serves as an informative history of the final days of Apache independence. Many interesting characters are covered in a good amount of detail when Geronimo is absent from the narrative, like Victorio, Loco, Chihuahua, Kaywaykla, Naiche (my personal favorite) and even the white generals Crook and Howard. There is ample coverage of the tribe's post-glory days when they were imprisoned on various disagreeable reservations, and the depressing consequences of the loss of their culture and the deaths of many tribe members from disease. The only flaws in this book are Debo's criticism of previous information sources as inaccurate (they were, but the author's criticism is often arrogant), and a rather sappy, overly sentimental writing style.

Historically Relevant 12. Oktober 2008
Von Arthur Chenevey - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Myth, mystery, and truth all become blurred when White-Eyes speak of Geronimo. Regardless, Angie Debo de-mystifies the man with as much objective documentation as is available for this man. And in a writing style that is both objective and humane, Debo offers Geronimo in a light which shines truthful.

Since no one is around to verify an event that was horrifically biased against this medicine man who simply wanted to be allowed to be APACHE, we can only read what is available and decide for ourselves. I have decided that this is simply one of the most well-rounded, unbiased accounts of an extremely powerful human being, unwavering in his desire to be who he was born to be: APACHE.

While reading this great historical document, it's hard not to admire and respect Geronimo and develop a genuine disdain for the injustice heaped upon all Native People's by White-Eyes narrow view of their world.

Good Quality 13. April 2014
Von S. H. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Having read the old but edited version of Geronimo's autobiography, I was led in its footnotes to this book among others. This one gives a lot of alternative points of view about the man, enabling the reader to make up his/her own mind about this larger-than-life historical figure. Good reading.
