Geronimo is probably the second-best-known Native American name, after Pocahontas. But the great Apache warrior's ultimate fate is little remembered. Feared for his once-great prowess long after any power he'd had was gone, Geronimo and his dwindling family were pointlessly herded from one detention centre to another in the American mid-west. The one-time warrior and horseman was eventually reduced to wearing a top hat and riding in an early Model T Ford, a grim caricature of assimilation into the dominant culture.The bitter irony of this fate echoes through the personal poems in At Geronimo's Grave. With affection and concern, Armand Ruffo examines the lives and experiences of people who struggle to make their way in a world that has no place for them. Or who have already given up that struggle. At Geronimo's Grave is a love letter to a people trapped in the slow-moving vehicle of another culture that's taking them nowhere.
