Description
"The riveting story of the Shawnee brothers who led the last great pan-Indian confederacy against the United States"--,Provided by publisher.
Description
Until the Americans killed Tecumseh in 1813, he and his brother Tenskwatawa were the co-architects of the broadest pan-Indian confederation in United States history. In previous accounts of Tecumseh's life, Tenskwatawa has been dismissed as a talentless charlatan and a drunk. Cozzens shows us that while Tecumseh was a brilliant diplomat and war leader-- admired by the same white Americans he opposed-- it was Tenskwatawa, called the "Shawnee Prophet," who created a vital doctrine of religious and cultural revitalization that unified the disparate tribes of the Old Northwest. -- adapted from jacket
