"A fiery orator, a brilliant diplomat, a revolutionary thinker, a political and military genius -- the man named Tecumseh became a legend among Native Americans and whites. He stood as a messiah to his people during one of the most crucial periods of their history, as the whites began to explore and expand to the west of the British colonies. Here five-time Pulitzer Prize nominee Allan W. Eckert tells the life story of this great leader as it has never been told before, with the meticulous accuracy of a scholar and the dramatic flair of a novelist. Mining sources of information never before utilized, Eckert fleshes out the details of a fascinating life and corrects the mistakes of previous accounts."

2 Eckert, Allan W. That Dark and Bloody River : Chronicles of the Ohio River Valley
New York Bantam 1995 0-553-09448-3 / 9780553094480 First Edition, First Printing SIGNED by the Author
Near Fine in a Fine dustjacket. Tan boards quarterbound in ivory cloth. The spine is stamped in metallic red. Octavo. Map-endpapers. [lxvii] + 810pps. There is mild bumping to the bottom of the front board and to the lower tips. Also, there is an incidental, faint and thin, 1/8" ink line near the bottom of the fore-edge. Otherwise clean, tight, square, and bright. The text is immaculate; no previous ownership markings. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, is as new; the original price is intact. Inscribed by the author to the original owner, 'with best wishes' on the half-title page. A very nice, collector's-quality copy.

"...To the banks of the Ohio came men and women willing to face any hazard or hardship to stake their claim, from cultured enterpreneurs such as George Washington to trailblazers like Daniel Boone, as rough and ready as the land itself. Here too was grizzled John Wetzel and his wife, determined to carve a farm out of the forest...young Betty Zane, who showed uncommon valor and quick thinking under Indian attack...bold and visionary Ebenezer Zane, who sought to bring some rule of law to the lawless wild...and Samuel Brady, a soldier of fierce intelligence -- and fierce hatreds. For them, the pilgrimage west marked the beginning of a dream. But for others -- the Shawnee, the Delaware, the Wyandot -- it marked the beginning of the end. And in the conflict that ensued, the Ohio came to be known as 'that dark and bloody river that leads to a dark and bloody land.'
Drawing on a wealth of research, both scholarly and anecdotal -- including letters, diaries, and journals of the era -- Allan W. Eckert has delivered a landmark of historical authenticity, unprecedented in scope and detail..."

5 Eckert, Allan W. Wilderness Empire : A Narrative
Boston Little, Brown & Company 1969 First Edition Cloth 
[1969]. Fine in a Fine dustjacket. Bound in full brick-red cloth. Both the spine and the front panel are stamped in gilt. Quarto. Map-endpapers. xiv + 653pps. Stated First Edition. An excellent, collector's-quality copy: clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. The textblock is immaculate; no apparent reading wear and no previous ownership markings. The dustjacket, glossy in a new mylar sleeve, is very mildly rubbed at the extremities; the original price (8.95) is intact. Volume 2 of 'The Winning of America' series. ".For over two hundred years no Indian force in America was so powerful and feared as the Iroquois League. But these Iroquois occupied and controlled a vast wilderness empire which beckoned like a precious gem to foreign powers. France and England secured toeholds and suddenly each was claiming as its own this land of the Iroquois. Alliance with the Indians was the key; whichever power controlled them could destroy the other. 'Wilderness Empire' is the gripping narrative of the eighteenth-century struggle of these two powers to win for themselves the allegiance of the Indians in a war for territorial dominance, yet without letting these Indians know that the prize of the war would be this very Iroquois land. It is the story of English strength hamstrung by incredible incompetance, of French power sapped by devastating corruption. It is the story of the English, Indian and French individuals whose lives intertwine in the greatest territorial struggle in American history -- the French and Indian War."
