"An offbeat, intriguing little book about the tribe that once built a city in Kentucky―Eskippakithiki―and was led by great chiefs such as Tecumseh."―Lexington Herald-Leader
"The life of Tecumseh and his brother, Tenskwautawa, 'The Prophet,' are treated with sensitive care. This short history is a valuable addition to the library of any general historian and delivers enough information to understand how the Shawnee fit into the settlement of Kentucky and surrounding area."―Northern Kentucky Heritage
"This short history is written in a clear style with complete survey of the subject for those who know very little about Native-American history."―Karl Lietzenmayer
"A great book. There is so much information here - a tremendous description of the social and political organization of the Shawnee, a very good description of their religious structure, and a tremendous description of the conflicts and associations between the Shawnee and the descendants of the various European nations who colonized the continent. If you're interested in Native Americans in general or the pre-modern history of the Appalachians in general, well, this is one for you."―Eric Drummond Smith, HillbillySavants.blogspot.com
"Its comprehensiveness makes it an excellent starting point for any investigation of this remarkable people during their great days in Kentucky and the Old Northwest."―Indiana Magazine of History
"A thoughtful and engaging study of early Shawnee migration and social organization."―Ohio Valley History
