Renowned for ferocity in battle, legendary for an uncanny ability to elude capture. feared for the violence of his vengeful raids. the Apache fighter Geronimo captured the public imagination in his own time and remains a mythic figure today. This thoroughly researched biography by a renowned historian of the American West strips away the myths and rumors that have long obscured the real Geronimo and presents an authentic portrait of a man with unique strengths and weaknesses and a destiny that swept him into history. Utley unfolds the story through the alternating perspectives of whites and Apaches, and he arrives at a more nuanced understanding of Geronimo's character and motivation than ever before. What it was like to be an Apache fighter-in-training, why Indians as well as whites feared Geronimo, how Geronimo maintained his freedom, and why he finally surrendered--the answers to these questions and many more fill these pages.--From publisher description

High noon in Lincoln : violence on the western frontier by Robert M Utley( Book )
9 editions published between 1987 and 1998 in English and held by 769 libraries worldwide
Here is the most detailed and most engaging narrated history to date of the legendary two-year facedown and shootout in Lincoln. Until now, New Mexico's late nineteenth-century Lincoln County War has served primarily as the backdrop for a succession of mythical renderings of Billy the Kid in American popular culture. However, as Robert Utley so convincingly demonstrates, this "war without heroes," the source of scores of books and movies, would have occurred even if Billy Bonney had never existed. Fundamentally, the war was a clash of personalities engaged int eh quest for money and power, involving the employment toward that end of every legal and lethal means available on the southwestern frontier. The Lincoln County Was is a case study in frontier violence. As such it needs to be understood as part of the heritage of Americans as a people inclined to violent pursuit of ambition and violent resolution of problems. Utley recreates the West of the 1870s to pierce the legends spawned by popular culture. In their place, he leaves the reader with a vivid image of the impact upon ordinary people of the code of the West, the cutthroat pursuit of financial fortunes during America's Gilded Age; and the twin harbingers of violence represented by whiskey and guns in the hands of hard-drinking men with hair-trigger tempers. Utley is that rare historian who transforms the past into a compelling , fast-paced, and highly readable story

Lone star lawmen : the second century of the Texas Rangers by Robert M Utley( Book )
12 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 530 libraries worldwide
Utley follows the Texas Rangers as the pursue bank robbers, bootleggers, moonshiners, and "horsebackers" (smugglers who use mule trains to bring liquor across the border). We see these fearless lawmen taming oil boomtowns, springing the ambush on Bonnie and Clyde, facing down angry lynch mobs, and tracking the "Phantom Killer" of Texarkana. Utley also highlights the gradual evolution of this celebrated force, revealing that while West Texas Rangers still occasionally ride the range on horseback and crack down on smugglers and rustlers, East Texas Rangers-who work mostly in big cities-now ride in high-powered cards and contend with kidnappers, forgers, and other urban criminals. But East or West, today's Rangers have become sophisticated professionals, backed by crime labs and forensic science
