The Apache Wars: The Hunt for Geronimo, the Apache Kid, and the Captive Boy Who Started the Longest War in American History by [Hutton, Paul Andrew]

Hello again, everyone. Tonight finds us in a new book review and this time it’s The Apache Wars: The Hunt for Geronimo, the Apache Kid, and the Captive Boy Who Started the Longest War in American History, by Paul Andrew Hutton.

His name was Mikey Free. His kidnapping started the longest war in American history, and both sides–the Apaches and the white invaders—blamed him for it.

As a man of biracial origin, he freely moved between worlds, that of the trader and the invader, between the Apaches and the American soldiers. While neither side truly trusted him, he was the only man Geronimo ever feared. His role in this war is documented richly documented in this book, beginning in 1861 until his final pursuit of the scout, Apache Kid.

In this work, Paul Hutton unfolds over two decades of the last war for the West through the eyes of the men and women who lived it. This is Mickey Free’s story. This is also the story of great Apache leaders Mangas Coloradas, Cochise, and Victorio, as well as the soldiers Kit Carson, O. O. Howard, George Crook, and Nelson Miles, and the scouts Al Sieber, Tom Horn, Tom Jeffords, and Texas John Slaughter.

This book also documents great heroines too like the Apache female warrior Lozen and other female warriors often lost to history among the Southwestern borderlands–a bleak and unforgiving world where a people would ultimately make their own lasting, final stands in American and Native American histories as well as the war machine that was the expansion of the American West.

With Native American history month right around the corner, Apache Wars is a must read this coming season! To find out more about this book, click here.
