The Longest War in American History

In True West magazine, Bob Boze Bell interviews Paul Andrew Hutton on the latter's sure-to-be controversial new book. An excerpt:

How did Geronimo go from being perceived as an evil terrorist to a freedom fighter?

This is a subject I wrote about in a True West article [August 2011]. My feelings on Geronimo are that he was a self-centered narcissist just like Gen. George Custer. That’s why I admire him. He was always only about Geronimo, never about the people. Was he bold, brave, charismatic and intelligent? Of course he was. Was he a patriot chief devoted to his people? Of course not.
