%% This is a multi-book review: SEE also the title "Geronimo". %% Gr. 4^-6. From the Native American Biographies series, these volumes survey the lives of two respected warriors and leaders, Geronimo (c.1823^-1909) and Sitting Bull (1831^-1890). Geronimo describes the man's personal and tribal grievances as he led the Apaches, first against the Mexicans, then against the encroaching Americans. Sitting Bull shows how this Sioux leader combined acts of compassion for individual white people with an uncompromising stance against the engulfing tide of soldiers and settlers that threatened the Sioux and the lands where they lived. Both books describe Native American tribes and how their leaders tried to uphold their people's traditional ways in times of catastrophic change. Libraries needing more books on these famous tribal leaders will find these useful choices. Each book ends with a chronology, chapter notes, glossary, and bibliography.
