    Outstanding reading

    This book brings Blue Jacket back into his rightful place in North American history. After reading this and 'Tecumsah' by the same author, I have found a new understanding of Native American history- especially from the period just after the American Revolution through the early 1800's.

    History of the old Northwest Territory up through Fallen Timbers and Greenville

    This is an enjoyable book about Indian/white relations in the old Northwest Territory, with special emphasis on the Shawnee war chief Blue Jacket. This book mainly covers the time period from the Revolutionary War to the Battle of Fallen Timbers and the Treaty of Greenville. The main strengths of this book are three. First, the Indian (and especially Shawnee) manner of making war is clearly explained so that the reader can see the relative strengths of an Indian army, compared with the armies of Generals Harmar, St. Clair and Wayne. Second, the book chronicles the Indian efforts to unite in opposition to white encroachment. Many authors have descibed the similar efforts undertaken a few years later by Chief Tecumseh. Chief Blue Jacket was Tecumseh's mentor. Third, the book offers us an inside look at Shawnee life and culture in the late eighteenth century. Their culture was in transition because of white American and Canadian influences and, at the same time, they were fighting to preserve their sovereignty and way of life. The book is thoroughly researched. The back of the book contains an extraordinary collection of research notes and citations that will prove valuable to those wishing to do follow-on research. Anyone interested in the old Northwest Territory or Indian/white relations should consider this book. Anyone interested in Chief Blue Jacket must read this book, as it is the best published biography of that enigmatic figure.

    Disjointed, confusing, and highly speculative.

    A vapid work. Not so much a history as a compilation of Blue Jacket anecdotes, most of them second or third hand, many of them presumptive and not justified in a work of this nature. The author talks a good talk, saying he will give us fact not fiction from primary soucrces--but then he gives us so much warmed over balderdash.
