If Sitting Bull is the most famous Indian, Tecumseh is the most revered. He does not stand for one tribe or nation, but for all Native Americans. He remains the ultimate symbol of endeavor and courage. Over thirty years in the writing, this is the first authoritative biography of the principal organizer and driving force of Native American confederacy. For anyone studying the early years of the Republic or Native American history, it is essential reading.

Reviews

Praise for Tecumseh

“A richly detailed, utterly scrupulous account that is as poignant as it is informative.” —Barry Gewen, The New York Times Book Review

“Sugden has mined previously ignored British regimental histories that are scattered all over the English countryside--an approach that indicates the breadth of his scholarship and the thoroughness of his analysis....Intricate....Insightful.” —Jennifer Veech, The Washington Post Book World
