The Truth About Geronimo

Britton Davis’s account of the controversial “Geronimo Campaign” of 1885-86 offers an important firsthand picture of the famous Chiricahua warrior and the men who finally forced his surrender. David knew most of the people involved in the campaign and was himself in charge of Indian scouts, some of whom helped hunt down the small band of fugitives.
