INDIAN FRIENDS AND FOES

A healthy antidote against the two persistent epidemic attitudes which distort one's view of the Indian personality: one which states that all Indians are noble, proud, and inarticulate: the other which portrays the Indians as ignoble, treacherous, and inarticulate. In this series of biographies an attempt is made to present various Indian personalities as individuals, some friendly to the white man, some hostile, but all motivated by unique personal or political attitudes. The lives of Pocahontas, Squanto, Pontiac, Joseph Brant, Tecumseh, Sacagawea, Black Hawk, Sequoya, Osceola, Crazy Horse, Sitting Bull, Cochise, and Geronimo are succinctly summarized in this book illustrated by David Humphreys Miller, and through their lives one achieves a fresh perspective of American history.
