Cochise, a Chiricahua, was said to be the most resourceful, most brutal, most feared Apache. He and his warriors raided in both Mexico and the United States, crossing the border both ways to obtain sanctuary after raids for cattle, horses, and other livestock. Once, only he was captured and imprisoned; on the day he was freed he vowed never to be taken again. From that day, he gave no quarter and asked none. Always at the head of his warriors in battle, he led a charmed life, being wounded several times, but always surviving.
In 1861, when his brother was executed by Americans at Apache Pass, Cochise declared war. He fought relentlessly for a decade, and then only in the face of overwhelming military superiority did he agree to peace and accept the reservation.
The book is published by University of Oklahoma Press.

What made the experience of listening to Cochise: Chiricahua Apache Chief the most enjoyable?
Simply the learning about Cochise, and the Apache civilization and culture.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Cochise: Chiricahua Apache Chief?
The description of the Bascomb Affair (Apache Pass) which is really the beginning of the Apache wars.
Did S. George Lee do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?
This is a history book, so that really dies not apply.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
No, the density of the information requires time to digest.
Any additional comments?
My main problem with this Audible program is the narration. The narrator's voice was fine, however, many of the words are mispronounced. "Mogollon" and "Cienega," for instance, and also many of the Apache and Spanish names were mispronounced throughout the narration. I think the narrator should have taken a little time and looked into how these words are commonly spoken.
