Driven from their homeland, the Indians fought bitterly to keep a final stronghold east of the Mississippi.  Savage cunning, strength, skill, and knowledge of the wilderness were their weapons, and the Indians used them mercilessly.  But they couldn't foresee the white men who would come later, men who loved the land as much as they did, who wanted it for their own.  Men who learned the Indian tricks and matched brutality for brutality.

The entire series is a must read for anyone who cares about American history. Should be required reading in our schools

What an amazing story of the settling of the mid west and the lives of incredible men, Simon Kenton and Tecumseh. It reads like a novel but the author's deep research into diaries, letters and accounts provides dialog and description in reporter-like detail.
