The critically acclaimed, award-winning author of A Sorrow in Our Heart brings to life an event that marked a major turning point in the history of the American frontier--the settling of the Ohio River Valley. "Compelling reading--an epic narrative history."--Publishers Weekly. ( )

to my mind, Tecumseh and Abraham Lincoln are unique examples of the "Self-made Man", the American ideal. The fact that one was white and the other Indian pale in comparison to their mutual achievement of attaining political power and then using it for the benefit of their people as a whole, and rising above the prejudices of their time, and their communities. The life of Tecumseh has been researched by Alan Eckert, as he said three times, once for his book "The frontiersmen", again for "Gateway to Empitr", and again for this purpose-built biography. Each time discarding received information and substituting stuff arising from better sources. This is the final word on the man whose life was tragically cut short by the battle on the Thames river in Ontario. Had he survived for the peace negotiations at the end of the war of 1812, Indians everywhere in America, would have been better off.
This book is about how much the right man can accomplish in the political arena, with only talent.
The book also includes material that really changed my concept of Simon Girty, who has been badly maligned by Zane Grey, in his acts of filial piety. Read it, and understand what a tragedy it was, that Lincoln and Tecumseh never met....one of the interesting "What ifs?..." of history. ( )

The orator and organizer's life was shaped by his tribe's tragic confrontation with westward-moving whites, who encroached on Native American lands along the Ohio River valley. His long struggle against this dispossession led Tecumseh to create a historic confederacy of tribes, but this crowning achievement was destroyed by his own brother at Tippecanoe in 1811. Eckert's dialogue is clunky, yet his colorful evocation of this seminal American figure will be more broadly accessible than are drier, more factual accounts.

Epigraph (Motto/Zitat)
Die Informationen stammen von der englischen "Wissenswertes"-Seite. Ändern, um den Eintrag der eigenen Sprache anzupassen.
When a white man kills an Indian in a fair fight it is called honorable, but when an Indian kills a white man in a fair fight it is called murder. When a white army battles Indians and wins it is called a great victory, but if they lose it is called a massacre and bigger armies are raised. If the Indian flees before the advance of such armies, when he tries to return he finds that white men are living where he lived. If he tries to fight off such armies, he is killed and the land is taken anyway. When an Indian is killed it is a great loss which leaves a gap in our people and a sorrow in our heart; when a white is killed, three or four others step up to take his place and there is no end to it. The white man seeks to conquer nature, to bend it to his will and to use it wastefully until it is all gone and then he simply moves on, leaving the waste behind him and looking for new places to take. The whole white race is a monster who is always hungry and what he eats is land. —Chiksika, elder brother of Tecumseh, to Tecumseh, March 19, 1779.
