'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
