FROM THE PUBLISHER - The heroic and tragic story of Indian resistance to the white man is told here for the first time in terms of the individuals who sparked it. The life stories of nine outstanding leaders represent different tribal back- grounds, different times and places, different aspects of leadership. Together they make a Composite portrait of the character of the chief, the man whose strength or cunning or statesmanship put him at the head of his clan, and who valued resistance to the invader more highly than life itself. These were not the ‘good Indians’ who came to terms with the whites, nor were they the mere troublemakers and crude savages. They were the patriots of their people, fighting a lost cause. The narrative begins with the gentle, vise, almost legendary Hiawatha and his attempts to unite the Iroquois just before the coming of the white mane It Continues with King Philip and his war with the New England settlers; Pope and the Pueblo revolt against the Spaniards in the Southwest; Pontiac, who led the most powerful Indian coalition in history; ail Tecumseh, who dreamed nobly of a great Indian federation living at peace with the newcomers. Going on to the nineteenth century, when the new nation pushed westward, it gives us Osceola leading the Seminoles against ruthless mistreatment in the South; Black Hawk and his Sauk and Foxes holding out vainly at the Mississippi; Crazy H6rse, the Sioux hero of the plains, and his empty victory over Custer; and finally Chief Joseph and the forlorn last stand of the Nez Percés in the Northwest. Objectively and with great vividness, the author gives a remarkable panorama ‘of Indian life; he brings the reader a new concept of Indian character and of a neglected part of our heritage. Lovers of authentic Americana, and all who relish a dramatic narrative, will find this book absorbing and rewarding. There are eight pages of illustrations, and each chapter has a map showing locations of tribes and important battles. Bookseller Inventory #
