Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Remarkable for their eloquence and depth of feeling, these 82 speeches encompass 5 centuries of Indian encounters with nonindigenous peoples. Speakers include Chief Joseph, Sitting Bull, Tecumseh, Seattle, Geronimo, Crazy Horse, and many lesser-known leaders, whose compelling words are graced by forceful metaphors and vivid imagery.

Synopsis:

Remarkable for their eloquence, depth of feeling, and oratorical mastery, these 82 compelling speeches encompass over three centuries of Indian encounters with non-indigenous peoples. Beginning with a 1540 refusal by a Muskoki chief to parley with Hernando de Soto ("With such a people I want no peace"), the collection includes such memorable orations as Powhatan's "Why should you destroy us, who have provided you with food?"(1609); Red Jacket's "We like our religion, and do not want another" (1811); Osceola's "I love my home, and will not go from it" (1834); Red Cloud's "The Great Spirit made us both" (1870); Chief Joseph's "I will fight no more forever" (1877); Sitting Bull's "The life my people want is a life of freedom" (1882); and many more. Gathered in this inexpensive edition, with informative notes about each speech and orator, the speeches are indispensable reading for anyone interested in Native American history and culture.

Synopsis:

82 great speeches by Chief Joseph, Sitting Bull, Crazy Horse, Tecumseh, Geronimo, more.
