Using first-person accounts in historical archives, David Roberts presents many sides of the Native American rebellion that began in the mid-1800s.

Once They Moved Like The Wind is the epic story of the battles between the Apaches and the United States Army for land and freedom. The larger-than-life characters of Geronimo, Cochise, and General George Crook move dramatically through these pages, illuminating the human story behind the Apache Wars.
