Author Name    Alvin M. Josephy, Jr.

Title   The Patriot Chiefs

Binding   Paperback

Publisher    The Viking Press

ISBN Number    61-17039

Seller ID   Cheap819

The heroic and tragic story of Indian resistance to the white man is told here for the first time in terms of the individuals who sparked it. The life stories of nine outstanding leaders - Hiawatha, King Philip, Pope, Pontiac, Tecumseh, Osceola, Black Hawk, Crazy Horse, and Chief Joseph - represent different tribal backgrounds, different times and places, different aspects of Indian leadership. These were not the "good Indians" who came to terms with the whites, nor were they the mere troublemakers. They were the patriots of their people, fighting a lost cause, and their story is basic but neglected Americana.

Price = 2.50 USD
