PAUL ANDREW HUTTON. The Apache Wars: The Hunt for Geronimo, The Apache Kid, and the Captive Boy Who Started the Longest War in American History. Crown Publishing. 528 pages; cloth paperback, $30, crownpublishing.com.

They called him Mickey Free. His kidnapping started the longest war in American history, from 1861 to 1890, and both sides–the Apaches and the white invaders–blamed him for it. A mixed-blood warrior, he was never trusted by the Apaches or the American soldiers. He was the only man Geronimo ever feared. He played a pivotal role in this long war for the Southwest with his pursuit of the renegade scout, Apache Kid.
