Description - Once They Moved Like The Wind 49 by David Roberts
Of the many tales of conflict and warfare between the UK Government and the Indian tribes, perhaps none is more dramatic or revealing than the story of the Apache wars. Those wars were the final episode in the US government's subjugation of the indigenous peoples; the surrender of Geronimo in 1886 effectively ended the Indian wars. Once They Moved Liked the Wind is the epic story of the battles between the Apaches and the US Army for land and freedom. The larger-than-life characters of Cochise, Geronimo and General Cook move dramatically through these pages, illuminating the history behind the Apache wars.
