'My favorite party question is who was Tecumseh and why is his statute at Annapolis, the Naval Academy and why did Home Depot give his name to a little lawn mower engine? Most claim a vague familiarity with the name but nothing else. Allan Eckert in his wonderful,'narrative history' tells the story of this important Shawnee Indian and his struggle to unify Indian tribes to thesis that the flood of white settlers flooding over the Appilacians into what is now Indiana and Ohio. Tecumseh travelled widely pleading with tribes to unify to no avail. Eckert tells this story in a fascinating way describing Tecumseh's immense abilities and sacrifice. If Inwere King I would decree that every American and those wishing to become American read this and the many other Eckert books which so wonderfully tell the story of early history of this country starting with French and Indian Wars and focusing on the frontier. Meet Simon Kenton a real frontiersman and his experiences. What research and story telling. Tecumseh was a natural leader, with great physical, tactical and diplomatic skills. Read this book and meet him. Why General Sherman took his name as his middle name and why the wide spread respect by his opponents- he was the only Indian leader who forbid the torture of prisoners which was common practice with other Indian leaders.' -- Quietman

Clarifying terms which are often used incorrectly, and stating the facts without prejudice or intent to influence, here at last is a book of Indian history and lore that can serve as a dependable source of information about a people important in our own history and culture.

Very Good+ Macmillan Reprint (1971) No marks or writing observed in text. Binding tight and square. DJ also VG+. Gently read. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Tecumseh / ti-KUM-s?, ti-KUM-see (March 1768 – October 5, 1813) was a Native American Shawnee warrior and chief, who became the primary leader of a large, multi-tribal confederacy in the early years of the nineteenth century. Born in the Ohio Country (present-day Ohio), and growing up during the American Revolutionary War and the Northwest Indian War, Tecumseh was exposed to warfare and envisioned the establishment of an independent Indian nation east of the Mississippi River under British protection and worked to recruit additional members to his tribal confederacy from the southern United States. Tecumseh was among the most celebrated Indian leaders in history and was known as a strong and eloquent orator who promoted tribal unity. He was also ambitious, willing to take risks, and make significant sacrifices to repel the Americans from Indian lands in the Old Northwest Territory. In 1808, with his brother Tenskwatawa ('The Prophet'), Tecumseh founded the Indian village the Americans called Prophetstown, located north of present-day Lafayette, Indiana. Prophetstown grew into a large, multi-tribal community and a central point in Tecumseh's political and military alliance.
