I didn´t finish this novel, because it didn´t only show cruelty very detailed, but also contained several prejudices towards "good" and "bad" "tribes" of Native Americans and other biases. It also dragged to read.
Thanks and sorry to the publisher and Netgalley for an ARC ebook in exchange for an honest review.

I enjoyed reading this book and learning more about the state of indigenous Americans at the time between the Revolutionary War and the War of 1812. The research was excellent; however, I was never "transported" by this book and actually needed multiple days to read it.

Once in a while you stumble on a novel that you have no idea why you got involved. This is one such case with a read that suddenly opened up new areas of history to be explored. I must admit to very limited knowledge regarding the plight of the American Indian after the American Revolution and their struggles to maintain their century old customs on land held sacred for generations. Tecumseh, the main character and chief of the Shawnee winds us through a series of hair raising and bloody events in a struggle to find solutions to the political dealings most often not in the Indians favor placed upon them by Indian Agent William Henry Harrison. While Indians are relocated and prayed upon and the white man is scalped and murdered, the numerous tribes plan the ultimate solution only to fall short and suffer the defeat that most of us are familiar with. You will enjoy adding to your knowledge of a sad and often misunderstood time in our countries past. Perhaps it will rekindle a new desire to dig deeper into this tragic era. Author Foster's research and ability to create a excellent group of believable characters builds a fascinating and compelling history lesson!
