Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

If Sitting Bull is the most famous Indian, Tecumseh is the most revered. Although Tecumseh literature exceeds that devoted to any other Native American, this is the first reliable biography--thirty years in the making--of the shadowy figure who created a loose confederacy of diverse Indian tribes that exted from the Ohio territory northeast to New York, south into the Florida peninsula, westward to Nebraska, and north into Canada.

A warrior as well as a diplomat, the great Shawnee chief was a man of passionate ambitions. Spurred by commitment and served by a formidable battery of personal qualities that made him the principal organizer and the driving force of confederacy, Tecumseh kept the embers of resistence alive against a federal government that talked cooperation but practiced genocide following the Revolutionary War.

Tecumseh does not stand for one tribe or nation, but for all Native Americans. Despite his failed attempt at solidarity, he remains the ultimate symbol of eavor and courage, unity and fraternity.

Book News Annotation:

The British author of Tecumseh's Last Stand writes further of this Shawnee chief--purportedly for the first time in the historical-cultural context of his tribe. The inside cover maps ground the charismatic leader dreamed of as a pan-Indian confederacy. While this alliance never materialized, Sugden's biography details his military powers as displayed in the War of 1812 as well as his family life. Includes b&w illustrations (several related to his 1813 last stand at Moraviantown near Detroit).

This was a very impressive accomplishment. Sugden employed a thorough array of sources to document a man whose history is not well documented. The speculations in the absence of details seem reasonable and the minimum needed to advance the biography. I imagine this work will set some type of standard for reconstructing the histories of a people lacking written records. He brought in enough local color to make me miss growing up in Ohio, too.
