Summary of the Book

Geronimo was an Apache Indian born in 1823. The Apache lived from Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, and Texas. He learned to take care of crops, hunt, and ride horses. He became a warrior at 17 the same age as when he got married. In 1850 Mexican soldiers attacked his village and killed most of the people in his village including his wife, mother, and 3 young children. He sought revenge. He was a great warrior and soon had to battle settlers and U.S. Forces as well. They were there to take over their land and move Indians to the reservations. They fought back but had no choice but to surrender in 1886. He died on Fort Sill in 1909. He fought bravely for his people.

Personal Reaction to the Book
This was a great biography covering an amazing Indian Warrior. I was saddened by the loss of his children and could see why he would of become angry. The Native American Genocide is the largest in human history but is the least taught. These types of books are important to remember the history of our country. I enjoyed this read.

Classroom Extension Ideas
1. In the classroom, Have students write a paragraph about what their reaction would of been if they were in Geronimo's shoes and they had lost their family.
2. In the classroom, Read book aloud to students and take a field trip to see where Geronimo was held and passed away. You could also see his grave while on Fort Sill. ( )

Geronimo is more than a name. He was an Apache Indian who led his people in a revolt against the Mexican army. Upon finding his entire family killed on their camp, Geronimo set out to make the Mexicans pay for what they did. This book contains a timeline as well as an index. Lots of pictures of Geronimo and his fellow Apache's. ( )
