Born during turbulent times. Tecumseh realized that unless native peoples came together to form a confederacy they would not hold onto their land. As a great orator, he encouraged other tribes to join forces with his own Shawnee people and sided with the British when the United States declared war on Great Britain. This richly illustrated biography was published as a tribute to Tecumseh on the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812.
