Indian Heroes and Great Chieftains

$20.00 each


Short biographical stories of 15 great Indian leaders.



“[T]he early chiefs,” Ohiyesa writes, “were spokesmen and leaders in the simplest sense, possessing no real authority.” Indian Heroes is a book of short biographical stories of 15 great Indian leaders, “real heroes of a free and natural people”: Red Cloud, Rain-in-the-Face, Little Wolf, Chief Joseph, Crazy Horse, Sitting Bull, Spotted Tail, Little Crow, Gall, Two Strike, American Horse, Dull Knife, Roman Nose, Hole-in-the-Day, and Tamahay. Most of these leaders were friends and acquaintances of Ohiyesa, and his telling of their lives makes all the difference.
