Tecumseh and the Prophet: The Heroic Struggle for America’s Heartland

 by Peter Cozzens (Knopf), Finalist for the George Washington Book Prize

“An enthralling, deeply researched dual biography of Shawnee leader Tecumseh and his younger brother… Cozzens’s cinematic narrative is steeped in Native American culture and laced with vivid battle scenes and character sketches. “—Publishers Weekly

“Mr. Cozzens puts his narrative skills to great use. His compelling prose and deep research in both primary sources and histories of the period combine to place the reader on the ground with the Shawnee brothers… Sharply drawn.”—Kathleen DuVal, The Wall Street Journal
