Written by Irene Ternier Gordon.
Published by James Lorimer & Company Ltd., 2009.
|Tecumseh: Diplomat and
Warrior in the War of 1812 is the biography of the legendary nineteenth
century Shawnee warrior, a hero of the War of 1812 and a man who spent most of
his life trying to build a Native confederacy to withstand the pressure on
native lands from American settlement.
It also tells the story of Tecumseh's younger brother Lalawethika, and of Lalawethika's transformation from a drunken ne'er-do-well to the charismatic spiritual leader known as The Prophet.
As a diplomat, Tecumseh dealt with the British and American authorities, with settlers, and with First Nations peoples on both sides of the border. He fought with the British in the War of 1812, and lost his life at the Battle of Moraviantown.
