Famous American Indians by William Heuman( Book )

2 editions published between 1972 and 1998 in English and held by 425 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The dustjacket states that author William Heuman was "deeply interested in the American Indians long before their cause became fashionable, and in writing this book, he achieved a lifelong ambition." The dustjacket does not specify exactly what was the author' lifelong ambition, but if it was to write a truthful, respectful account of white man's encroachment -- and ultimate usurpation -- of Native American populations, then the author nobly succeeded. Written for younger (teenage) readers, this book is a great introduction, for any age reader, to the lives of nine of the "best-known" Native Americans who are covered in this book: King Philip, Pontiac, Joseph Brant, Osceola, Tecumsch, Sequoyah, Chief Joseph, Crazy Horse and Sitting Bull. As the dustjacket attests, the stories are not pleasant, but are essential to understanding these people, who were not wild savages to be extirpated, but men of character, men who loved their people and their homeland and who were determined to protect both. The book is illustrated with archival photographs which nicely compliment the author's respectful treatment of this subject. Of course, it goes without saying that, by necessity, this book (being for younger readers) skims the surface of the real history, but at least it makes genuine contact with the truths. As a starting point for younger readers in Native American studies, I highly recommend this book.--Amazon.com

En el decenio de 1920, la "Era Dorada de los Deportes", las figuras dominantes fueron hombres del calibre de Bebe Ruth, Ty Cobb, Jack Dempsey, Red Grange, Bobby Jones y Johnny Weissmuller. Fue esa la época de las taquillas de millón de dólares cuando la televisión era todavía un sueño y al radio apenas empezaba. Todos esos atletas eran mágnificos, y aunque todas esas marcas que establecieron ya han sido superadas, sus proezas en los campos de beisbol, futbol, pista y en el cuadriláero viviran eternamente. William Heuman, muy aficionado a los deportes, encontró muy de sus agrdo escribir las biografías de esos atletas famosos, así como las de algunos que surgieron después, como Bob Cousoy, Dick Button, Bob Matthias
