Interest Age 11+ Reading Age 8+. This is a fascinating short book detailing an important aspect of American History - that of the native American people, the Apaches. Geromino was a famous Apache who went on fighting the US government and the new settlers even when everything was taken away from him and his people. Some called him a killer whilst others called him brave and a hero. In reality he was only trying to save what was rightfully his and that of his people. How far would you, the reader, go to gain your freedom?
