    2. Didn t think I would like this so much, but it pulled me in, and I liked that the author consulted with a historian from an Apache tribe to get her historical facts right Strong girl protagonist and a fast moving tale.

    4. Exciting adventure story of vengeance and revenge, pride, honor and courage among the Apache after women and children are attacked by Mexicans, set toward the end of the 1800s Written by a Brit, includes a bibliography but does not claim to be historically accurate.Although shortlisted for the 2008 UK s Carnegie Medal, Native American book bloggers have written scathing reviews, calling it atrocious, problematic, sloppily researched, Euro feminist, and outrageous, suggesting Joseph Bruchac s Ger [...]

    5. This book is so beautifully written Nearly every sentence, every phrase, comes out of the page There is not a dull moment throughout the entire novel Siki s observations and ways of thinking are fascinating They make what she is going through somehow relatable There are so many twists in the plot, which is at times heart wrenching I also adored the many morals entwined into the story There were feminist undertones in Siki s pursuit as a warrior and emphasis on the importance that the Apache pla [...]

    6. I really wanted to like this book In terms of writing style, it was very good However, the authors statement in the back of the book leaves much to be desired I ve tried to be authentic as far as period detail goes, but at times I have had to stretch things in order to make the story work If there are mistakes, I apologize Holding a bachelor s in history, I find this statement insulting Authors should always be accurate Stretching the facts to make the story work is not acceptable Especially whe [...]

    7. This book is about a young girl who wants to avenge his brother s death by becoming an Apache warrior and killing the Mexican who killed her brother.I liked the faith that Siki had to become a warrior even though she was a woman I also liked the way Siki did not become an American with her father but instead she stayed loyal to the Apache tribe I learned that you should always follow your dream to be whatever you want to be no matter what gender or race.This book is exciting, scary, and happy.

    8. Am enjoying this It seems that there are diverse opinions about the authenticity of the lives of the Apache leading to strong views about the value of this story, but it is fiction

    9. I love this story I am so happy that I have it on my shelf and that I can read it over and over again The story makes you fall in love with Siki By the time the end comes, you re ready to turn back with her, declaring, I am Apache It s sad, since it s about the end of her culture, but it is amazing Do not NOT pass this book up.

    10. Damn that was good The main character was well developed and I loved learning about the Apache way of life I ve never read a fiction book that focus on Native Americans, so I was eager to read this The fact that it was so well written helped I hope she writes a sequel, as I really want to know what happens to Siki.

    11. very good book slow at the beginning but then it just got sadder and sadder at the ending is there other books that go with this book

    12. It is often sobering to recall that the lines on the maps marking what we now think of the USA are all fairly recent, and that only about 160 years ago large swathes of what we now call California and Arizona and Texas were part of the northern regions of Mexico All this changed in the mid 1800s, with myth making at the Alamo and redrawing of lines on maps to shift ownership of these tracts of land to the still developing and settling into its new spaces USA as it made and claimed those spaces a [...]

    14. When I first started reading this book, I just started reading it bacause I had to have another book read by December 9th But as I started to get into the middle of the book, I really enjoyed reading it It had all of the elements of a book that I like It had action and it didn t lag in parts, the author really did a good job of that.The book starts out with the girl, Siki, telling about her little brother, Tazzhi, that got killed by the Mexicans when they went to trade goods and products with th [...]

    17. In her author s note, Tanya Landman says I ve made no attempt to produce an accurate historical novel And, she says, the story she tells is based on events and inspired by an autobiography of Geronimo I m not down with that sort of thing, particularly when the overall presentation is so narrow.I did some word counts of words used in the book These are at least numbers I may have missed occurrences of some of the words listed below butcher appears 4 timesslaughter appears 4 timeshacked appears 5 [...]

    18. When I finished Buffalo Soldier by Tanya Landman I wanted to read by this author so I picked up the ebook for Apache immediately, to impatient to wait for the 3 4 days it would take for a hard copy of the book to arrive.This book shares many similarities with Buffalo Soldier, a girl becomes a warrior, fights for freedom that will not come and like Buffalo Soldier the story also has little mysteries that surprised me.Apache tells the story of Siki, a young girl of an Apache tribe who sees her wo [...]

    20. Einige Vorf lle in dieser Geschichte basieren auf historischen Ereignissen, die sich in der zweiten H lfte des 19 Jahrhunderts an der Grenze zwischen Arizona und Mexiko zugetragen haben Jedoch sind laut dem Nachwort der Autorin jeder Stamm, s mtliche Figuren und Ortsnamen frei erfunden es handelt sich also nicht um einen historischen Roman.Das Buch hatte mich bereits nach nur drei S tzen in seinen Bann gezogen, auch wenn das nat rlich nur f r einen ersten Eindruck reicht Aber dieser hat sich bes [...]

    23. I m always puzzled when an author chooses to set a novel in the past, even lists books consulted, but then proclaims that the book is not intended to be an accurate historical novel, as Landman does here The subtitle on the UK cover, Girl Warrior, suggests that Landman s interest is in the unconventional life of her protagonist narrator than in historical detail The narrator, no good at traditional women s tasks, decides to become a warrior to avenge her little brother s death at the hands of M [...]

    24. I Am Apache is one of the few young adult stories that I ve read about Native Americans.In her quest to avenge her brother, female protagonist Siki made some revelating discoveries about herself and her heritage The author keeps the plot rolling as we accompany Siki through the trials she had to face and the battles she fought alongside to warriors of the tribes.The ending was not unexpected, and the integration of romance was welcoming, albeit being a bit short.Overall, I really like this book [...]

    25. DNF pg 140This book was recommended to me by a friend IRL Most of the time we agree on books, but there have been a few lately that just didn t work for me And this is one of them I think it is the writing style I was trying to figure out why we usually agree, yet on these particular books we didn t Then it hit me, they all use in my opinion excessive foreshadowing Sure, you don t know exactly how things are going to happen, but it does not take too much to figure out the end result Once I told [...]

    26. NOTE POSSIBLE SPOILERThis book was well written, exciting, emotional, and appeared to be historically accurate I was drawn in immediately and loved how clear everything from Siki s point of view was Sadly, though it really clarifies what it was like for American Indians, I did NOT like the ending I feel it was ended almost as if the author thought the book had been going on long enough so let s kill the person she s in love with off unnecessarily , throw a baby in there I am confused about how t [...]

    27. This book is about a young woman named Siki who is in an Indian tribe in the 1800s and lives close to Mexico and is becoming a warrior but trouble looms to the east and is coming in the form of Americans.This book reminds me of me because no matter what, I won t abandon my friends even at the most dangerous of times.This book reminds me of Warriors because in both books you have to do a series of tasks to be a warrior.This book reminds me of how today, Native Americans are making a comeback and [...]
