Publisher's Summary

The name "Geronimo" came to Corine Sombrun insistently in a trance during her apprenticeship to a Mongolian shaman. That message and the need to understand its meaning brought her to the home of the legendary Apache leader's great-grandson, Harlyn Geronimo, himself a medicine man on the Mescalero Apache reservation in New Mexico. Together, the two of them - the French seeker and the Native American healer - would make a pilgrimage that retraced Geronimo's life while following the course of the Gila River to the place of his birth, at its source. Told in the alternating voices of its authors, In Geronimo's Footsteps is the record of that journey. At its core is an account of Geronimo's life, from his earliest days in a Chiricahua Apache family and his path as a warrior and chief to his surrender and the years spent in exile until his death, at Fort Sill, Oklahoma. Recounted by his great-grandson, his story is steeped in family history and Apache lore to create a portrait of a leader intent on defending his people and their land and traditions - a mission that Harlyn continues, even as he campaigns to recover his ancestor's bones from the U.S. government. Completing Corine's circle, the audiobook also explores the links, genetic and possibly cultural, between the Apache and the people of Mongolia.

The Footsteps Of A True American Legend

Would you listen to In Geronimo's Footsteps again? Why?

Yes! The story of a true American legend, Geronimo. The book is told thru the knowledge of his grandson and a Shaman that shares a connection. She comes to Geronimo's grandson, and together they embark on a journey that will retrace the footsteps of, Geronimo.

What was one of the most memorable moments of In Geronimo's Footsteps?

The Native American tales told throughout the book.

Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This is the first one I have listened to, but will be watching for more books done by the narrators. Very well done.

Any additional comments?

For anyone that wants to know or understand the hardships endured by the Native American, I recommend this book. It is a great listen that takes you on a journey step by step, into history.

Boring story about a roadtrip...should have passed

Each chapter is split into two parts. The start of each chapter begins with Corine Sombrun's lengthy narrative of her road trip with Harlyn Geronimo and his two granddaughters to the White Mountains of Arizona. Sombrun masterfully weaves each roadside potty break, and the amount of candy the granddaughters eat with stops for diesel fuel and McDonalds in this wonderfully boring story. I had to will myself to stay engaged. I was rewarded at times during the second half of each chapter where Harlyn Geronimo told short and sometimes interesting stories of his great grandfather. Overall this is not the book about Geronimo I was hoping for.
