Summary
On February 17, 1909, in the dark heart of winter, the great Apache leader, Geronimo, dies of pneumonia after 23 years as a prisoner of war of the United States. Days later, a young, highly decorated Marine Corporal named Frank Kidd learns about Geronimo's death. Kidd's real name is Chaco, and he believes he is Geronimo's nephew. Orphaned at birth, Chaco was toughened by the cruelties of the white man's Indian school, battle-hardened by guerrilla warfare, and severely wounded in the 1906 Cuban Pacification Campaign. Chaco returns to Fort Sill's Apache POW camp, where his adoptive mother is dying, and his sister is trapped in a brothel. Long-held secrets are soon revealed: Chaco is the old warrior's last son, and his father's final wish was to be buried "in the country that knows my name." To honor that request, Chaco must rescue his sister and liberate Geronimo's bones from the Apache Cemetery
