A rediscovered, defiant work of Native American literature, presented here on the 175th anniversary of its first publication Upon its publication in 1833, this unflinching narrative by the vanquished Sauk leader Black Hawk was the first thoroughly adversarial account of frontier hostilities between white settlers and Native Americans. Black Hawk, a complex, contradictory figure, relates his life story and that of his people, who had been forced from western Illinois in what was known as the Black Hawk War. The first published account of a victim of the American war of extermination, this vivid portrait of Indian life stands as a tribute to the author and his extraordinary people, as well as an invaluable historical document.For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world.

BUY IT !!!

There are few accounts of the Sauk and Fox tribes, so it was a real pleasure to find Black Sparrow Hawk's story available on Kindle. This is one to read and re-read for it opens up the life of the Native Americans, illuminating so much of our Manifest Destiny as viewed by the people we displaced. He was a remarkable man, leader and hero.

i was very interesred in reading this book when i heard about it since i had grown up in illinois hearing the stories of blackhawk.one of best memories was going and seeing the blackhawk statue outside of rock island illinois overlooking the rock river.
when reading the book,it was very interesting reading about the circunstances that caused blackhawk to fight the goverment and brings you to understand what the indian was up against in that time.the introduction was very interesting as it prepared you for the true story of the indian life style in that time period.i am sure this is a classic that should be shared in our school system.
