Tecumseh wanted to stop the government from taking more. He believed that if all American Indian tribes joined together, they could defeat the U.S. soldiers. Tecumseh traveled south from his home village in present-day Ohio. During his journey, he visited many American Indian tribes, hoping to gain their support. Today, many people respect Tecumseh's vision of unity.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3-6-Each of these biographies features an attractive layout, a clear narrative, and colorful illustrations that support the texts. Osceola recounts the life of the Seminole warrior who led his people in battle against the encroaching American soldiers in the southeastern portion of the United States. Similarly, Tecumseh describes the attempts of the Shawnee leader to unite Native Americans from many tribes as one nation as a means of protecting his people's way of life in the north central region of the U.S. Both books describe these events in a sympathetic, yet neutral, tone. In general, the stories are told in a straightforward and descriptive manner with a minimum of fictionalization. Tecumseh, however, does contain a few direct quotes that are undocumented. A particular strength of each book is the information conveyed about the culture and lifestyles of the tribe through the description of the subject's childhood. Drawings and photographs, including some archival material, illustrate the texts. There have been other biographies of each of these individuals for this age group, including C. Ann Fitterer's Tecumseh: Chief of the Shawnee (Child's World, 2002), but unfortunately most of them are now out of print. Collections needing to update their holdings would do well to consider these titles.-Linda Greengrass, Bank Street College Library, New York City Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
