Brian just posted a new clip from one of his works in progress, Geronimo Country, a documentary about the famous Apache leader and the landscape where he lived, thrived and, eventually, surrendered.

In this clip, expert Jerry Eagan explains how naturally formed holes in rocks presented an advantage to savvy Apache runners looking to thwart cavalry pursuit.*
