Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Tecumseh is a great Shawnee chief in the early 1800s. His father, a chief himself, dies in a battle with white men when Tecumseh is young. In his stead, Tecumseh's oldest brother teaches him to be a warrior. His youngest brother, Tenskwatawa, though addicted to alcohol in his youth, eventually turns his life around to become a tribal holy man, or prophet. Together they try to convince other Native American tribes to work together to keep white settlers from taking over the land they all love. The author offers many interesting insights into this challenge. He writes of the time the governor of the Indiana Territory charges the Prophet to make the sun stand still. His plan to weaken the brothers' influence backfires when Tenskwatawa agrees, knowing there will be a solar eclipse on June 16, 1806. McLeese tells of the Shawnee's move from Ohio to join the Kickapoo and Potawatomi tribes in the Indiana Territory to establish a new capital for Native Americans. "Prophetstown" becomes the center from which Tecumseh travels to enlist tribal support. The dream ends with the death of Tecumseh as he fights for the British in the War of 1812. An 1820 Indiana newspaper writes of him as "a statesman, a warrior and a patriot." This book answers the question of where the name "Indians" originated and lists useful resources for further study. Complete with illustrations and an easy to read format, this book is a valuable addition to the "Native American Legends" series. 2004, Rourke Publishing, Ages 8 to 12.
