Comments to eBook The Legend of Mickey Free
Gavirim
A stupid, inaccurate novel about an imaginary character based on the name, "Mickey Free." Mickey Free was a very interesting person who led a facinating life. A pity the author felt forced to create an entirely different life to portray in this book.
Velellan
it reminded me of Louis Lamoure style writing

this was one of those books that got really good at the end of it i would bet that a lot of people give up on it- but it is ok if you stick with it

This "historical" paperback book simply distorts historical fact. To be fair, the book in its prologue warns the reader to "choose what to believe." Mickey Free became a famous figure in frontier history as an Army scout and tracker. So, why should this well informed author confuse readers with the belief that Geronimo was Mickey Free's father, or that Mickey Free grew up to become history's infamous Apache Kid ? Both accounts are false. Why further confuse readers with the belief Mickey Free's foster brother was a well known Apache named Chato, when in fact his true Apache foster brother was named John Rope, an individual who became an Indian scout. Why confuse readers into believing Mickey Free was taken as an infant, the sole survivor of an Apache massacre when in fact he was probably (14) years of age when captured during a raid on an Arizona ranch ? True, he was then raised by an Apache woman, but her name was Nayundiie, not "Gray Willow" as stated in the book. The true life of Mickey Free abounds with fascinating events, so why confuse knowledge of such a life with inaccurate and misleading facts ? I give the book a very generous (2) star rating.

Legend: "a widely-accepted but unverified story" Webster College Dictionary

While the title of this work of fiction purports to deliver "a widely-accepted but unverified story", I do not believe most knowledgeable readers on the life of Mickey Free will ever "widely accept" this hash work of the famous scout's life.

It would be far better to read NO book whatsoever on the life of Mickey Free than to read this one. For anyone who knows anything about the life of Mickey Free, realize there are much better sources available both in book form and OLD WEST magazine from the early 1970's.

For me, A. Kinney Griffith wrote it all, he not only knew these people but also lived with many. The book by Griffith reprints the same material available years ago that appeared in Joe Small's publication, OLD WEST magazine. If you are truly interested in the Mickey Free of history avoid this book by Kerry Newcomb which is for this reader full of misinformation and nonsense.

If you desire further comments concerning the Griffith book, please see my February 21, 2005, Amazon small review of the 1969 A. Kinney Griffith book. I yet have the book in my library, and have treasured reading it several times

It's fortunate Ole Hosstail ain't still living to see this batch of inaccurate fiction.

A novel typical of many modern westerns, more interested in creating a politically correct image of frontier life in the minds of readers than to give readers an idea of what things were really like. Mickey Free was a real person. He was born Felix Ward, and was violently kidnapped from his family ranch by people we today would call terrorists. He had no familial relationship with Geronimo (Golkayeh) or Chato or any other Chiricaua. He did spend a lot of time with some White Mountain Apache bands, after coming to live among them after his captors traded him off as if he were livestock. He shared the White Mountain Apache loathing of the Chiricaua. As an adult he was an enemy of the Chiricaua because of his treatment at their hands, and the great motivation for him to scout for the Army was for revenge.
I would not recommend this novel to anyone who is truly interested in what life was like in the southwestern frontier.
