Geronimo by Robert M Utley( Book )
8 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 1,194 libraries worldwide
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
Lone star lawmen the second century of the Texas Rangers by Robert M Utley( file )
9 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 1,100 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
