About this item
In this biography, David Edmunds examines the life of legendary Shawnee leader Tecumesh and his pivotal role in defending the Native American way of life.
Since his death as an avowed warrior at the Battle of the Thames in 1813, the details of Tecumsehs life have passed into the realm of legend, myth and drama. In this new edition, David Edmunds considers the man who acted as a diplomat a charismatic strategist who attempted to smooth cultural divisions between tribes and collectively oppose the seizure of their land.
