Excerpt

This book commemorates one of the most significant events in the history of the Southwest--the surrender of Naiche, the hereditary Chirichahua chief, and Geronimo, the Apache shaman and war leader, to General Nelson A. Miles at Skeleton Canyon on the Mexican border on September 4, 1886. It was the end of an era--the beginning of a new day for the white man and of bitter exile for the Indians. The documents and articles which follow are intended to throw light on the personalities and events which changed the course of history in the Territory of Arizona a century ago.
