The movie is based on "The Wild Girl" by Jim Fergus.
25 September 2011 | by rrflores00See all my reviews

I was extremely disappointed by this movie after reading the book which was loosely based on The Great Apache Expedition or the Fimbres Apache Expedition which began in Douglas, Arizona and then went on to the Sierra Madres in Mexico. In the novel the hero who writes down the story is a teenager, which makes much more sense for the part where he falls in love and marries the Apache girl. The female archaeologist falls in love with the younger Apache scout and this is why she chooses to stay in the Sierras with the wild Apaches. During the story a history of the war between the Mexican and the Apache people is covered as is the history of the war between the United States and the Apache people. This goes a long way to explain the actions of both the Mexican soldiers and the Apache warriors. All this is left out of the movie. Of course the cinematography of the movie and the actors do a credible job with the parts they are given, but again the writing leaves out the parts that made the novel so memorable. Just like the movie "the Wind Talkers" the director wants to make the movie more relevant to the white audience by making the white characters the center of the movie. Personally I would like to tell Hollywood to wake up, there is a large non white audience out there and this is the 21st Century not the 20th.
