Sinopse

The Bones of Geronimo is a book about two border patrol agents of Sierra Vista, Arizona, one of which is a descendant of Geronimo. These two agents experience the thrill of the chase to capture illegal aliens crossing the border at night. They have an outstanding arrest record for undocumented and illegal aliens in their joint portfolio. They make numerous excursions into the desert, and by campfire, Gerald Gerome Geronimo—otherwise called Jerry by his associate—tells stories of his great-grandfather, Chief Geronimo. The flashbacks to the Indian wars between the Mexican Army and the United States Army add flavor at points in the current events. They capture ten undocumented aliens and, by executive order from President Obama, are ordered to release them if they had not committed any other crime but entry into the United States. Samuel Jackson Silverstone, known as Jack to his friends, obeys the order but plants GPS tracking devices into their rears under the guise of a tuberculosis injection. He returns the illegal aliens to the spot they were captured and turns to watch them run away. Jerry and Jack return to the sheriff’s office and turn on the tracking computer to watch the screen display ten individuals disperse into the desert. Two of the individuals return to Mexico and drop off the screen’s attention. The other eight individuals are seen throughout the night walking toward town. They observe their movements and wait. They respond to alarms that are set off concerning robberies and murder and exercise their rights to arrest offending criminals. Jerry is troubled by the news of his goal to return the bones of Geronimo to his birthplace requested by the Apache chief of the Bedonkohe tribe. His request was to be buried in the Triplet Mountains of San Carlos near the headwaters of the Gila River. Geronimo was buried at Fort Sill in Lawton, Oklahoma, where his formal request was ignored. However, Jerry learns that the Skull and Bones Society from Yale University has stolen the bones of Geronimo for their collection, particularly by Prescott Bush and six other bones men in 1918. Jerry’s group appeals to the congress and Pres. George W. Bush concerning the return of the bones of Geronimo.
