The Muskogees' Struggle for a New World

'In Sacred Revolt Joel Martin places the 1813-1814 revolt of the people who were called 'Creek Indians' in the context of world history while forsaking nothing of the texture of their own culture. With a deft use of multiple perspectives, he has rewritten a chapter in the history of the Old South. His book will do much to freshen stale ways of thinking about a valiant people.'

-Charles Hudson, author of The Southeastern Indians

About the Author:

Joel W. Martin is associate professor of religious studies and American studies at Franklin and Marshall College.

From Library Journal:

In a compelling counterpoint to viewing colonial Indian-white relations as a series of uneven battles or unfair massacres, author Martin traces the cultural/religious history of the Muskogee "Creeks" from precontact times, through a century of nation-to-nation dealings with European traders, to a culmination of this interaction in the 1814 revolt against the U.S. Army at the Battle of Horseshoe Bend. Placed in a Muskogee context, this revolt is more than an uprising against white encroachment; it is the culmination of an ongoing effort by the Muskogees for cultural reaffirmation. Part of a growing body of literature in which Native Americans are viewed as dynamic participants in the events that encompass their worlds, this is an important contribution to U.S. history collections.
-Mary B. Davis, Huntington Free Lib., Bronx, New York
