"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 Native North Americans, sheds light on their relations with early European settlers, and highlights the role of women in shaping the folklore traditions associated with the Shawnee chief."--Jacket." ;
