Geronimo's story of his life is unquestionably the most important piece of American literature that no one is required to read in school. I have a minor in American Studies and even I never heard this book mentioned in school. Geronimo's simple style feels like the reader is listening to a story at a campfire rather than in the pages of a book/5(71).In all, Debo’s characterization of Geronimo is far more favorable than those offered by Thrapp, Davis, Sieber, and Sweeney.
