Blue Jacket: War Chief of the Shawnees

Blue Jacket: War Chief of the Shawnees

(1968)
A novel by

 
Blue Jacket (ca. 1743-ca. 1808), or Waweyapiersenwaw, was the galvanizing force behind an intertribal confederacy of unparalleled scope that fought a long and bloody war against white encroachments into the Shawnees homeland in the Ohio River Valley. Blue Jacket was an astute strategist and diplomat who, though courted by American and British leaders, remained a staunch defender of the Shawnees independence and territory. In this arresting and controversial account, John Sugden depicts the most influential Native American leader of his time. John Sugden is an independent scholar and a former associate editor of Oxford University Presss American National Biography project. His books include Tecumseh: A Life, winner of the Society for Military History Distinguished Book Award.
