Tecumseh : a life by John Sugden( Book )

19 editions published between 1997 and 2008 in English and held by 2,045 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"If Sitting Bull is the most famous American Indian, Tecumseh, the legendary Shawnee chieftain, is the most revered. In the early years of the nineteenth century he dreamed of welding the diverse North American tribes into a vast confederacy stretching from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico, strong enough to defend the cultures and lands of the Indians from the aggression of the United States. A charismatic leader with outstanding military and political talents, Tecumseh created a powerful pan-Indian alliance to replace intertribal conflict and indifference. A major figure in the War of 1812, he helped defeat American attempts to invade Canada, and his followers engaged U.S. armies across the entire frontier." "Although Tecumseh died in battle at the height of his fame with his vision of a great Indian confederacy in shreds, his reputation is secure. Unlike most Indian leaders, who operated locally or participated in intertribal warfare, Tecumseh does not stand for one tribe or nation but for all Native Americans. Despite his failed attempt at solidarity, he remains the ultimate symbol of endeavor and courage, unity and fraternity." "The product of thirty years of research in North America and Europe, this comprehensive and authoritative biography offers new revelations about every stage of the legendary chief's life by the leading scholar on Tecumseh and the Shawnees."--Jacket

Among military and naval commanders, Nelson stands in a small circle as one of the finest examples of inspirational leadership. [In this book, the author] charts the period of his career neglected by earlier writers - from his character-forming childhood to his breathtaking victory against the Spanish fleet at Cape St. Vincent, when he became an admiral and won international fame. It ends dramatically with his bloody defeat at Tenerife, where he lost an arm. Like Alexander of Macedon, Nelson led from the front (not always a sensible custom). But he was a hero, and his actions invariably raised his stock with his men, who trusted him as a commander willing to share their dangers ... Dealing with every facet of his crowded life, the author offers the only full account of Nelson's early voyages and the first complete analysis of the formative incidents in his career. Throughout, there are revealing, startling, and sometimes shocking discoveries about Nelson's relationships with family, patrons, officers and men, and women.-Dust jacket
