Inner hinges starting but holding very well. Text is clean and complete. No torn, loose or missing pages. This book showcases the exploits of heroic Native American men and women who fiercely defended their land against white settlers determined to take it from them King Philip of the Wampanoag, The Squaw Sachem of the Pocassets, the war chief Pontiac, Tecumseh, Chief Cornstalk, Little Turtle of the Miamis, Sacagawea the great guide, Red Cloud of the Sioux, Standing Bear, the legendary chief Sitting Bull, and others. These Indian warriors endured three centuries of hostilities and were often vilified by their enemies, yet, as this book shows, they were possessed of just as many noble qualities as the white man.
By the same token, it will be seen that the Indians could be just as cruel and merciless as their opponents. The author writes in the Foreword. When the white race came into the country of the red race, the red race had long had had their own ways of living and their own code of right and wrong. To the white people, many methods of the Indians were wrong; to the Indians, many of the white peoples methods were wrong.
The white people won the rulership, because they had on their side a civilization stronger than the loose civilization of the red people, and were able to carry out their plans. The Indian fought as he had always fought, and ninety-nine times out of one hundred he firmly believed he was enforcing the right. The white man fought after his own custom and sometimes after the Indians custom also; and not infrequently he knew that he was enforcing a wrong.
Of course the Indian was not wholly right, and the white man was not wholly wrong. There is much to be said, by either, and there were brave chiefs and warriors on both sides. This book is written according to the Indians view of matters, so that we may be better acquainted with his thoughts.
The Indians now living do not apologize for what their fathers and grandfathers did. A man who defends what he believes are his rights is a patriot, whether they really are his rights, or not.
