Tecumseh's Bones

Tecumseh's Bones

Book - 2010
Rate this:
Part detective story, part historical inquiry, this book explores the countless attempts to locate the chief's grave and raise a monument in his honour. The first substantial book on the subject based primarily on Canadian material and packed with vivid descriptions of regional life in the nineteenth century, Tecumseh's Bones examines changing attitudes towards Natives, sheds light on their relations with early Euro-Canadian settlers, and highlights the role of women in shaping the folklore traditions associated with the Shawnee chief. Drawing on a wealth of archival material, most of which has never been published, Tecumseh's Bones will fascinate history buffs, historians, and mystery lovers.
