This is the last in his Winning of America Series and centers on the Black Hawk War, the culmination of the conquest of the Old Northwest Territories by the chicanery, military prowess, superior firepower and resources of the US Government of "Indian-hater" President Andrew Jackson and the limited fighting ability of Zachary Taylor, young Abraham Lincoln and Jefferson Davis.

One of the premier chroniclers of our nation's turbulent frontier history, Allan W. Ecker now presents another spellbinding chapter in the conquest of the American wilderness.  Here is the powerful, compellingly human story of the white man's struggle to claim the rich land of the Northern Mississippi--ancestral home of the Fox and Sac tribes--from the legendary war chief Black Hawk.  Having killed his first enemy at sixteen.  This proud, brooding warrior extends a hand in friendship to the Spanish and the British, but harbors a lifelong hatred for the Americans, who once burned his home village.  Now charged by the president himself, the ambitious governor of Illinois Territory leads a brave and illustrious group of settlers and soldiers to wrest the beautiful land from a nation of destiny and a noble chieftain fated to be betrayed by his own kind.

If you like your history documented and real....you'll love all of Allan Eckerts books. They give you such an insight into how this country was built. He never takes sides. Your sympathies will be with everyone because everyone has a reason for their actions, however flawed they may be.

Print too small couldn't read this book. Actually had to buy another book with larger print in order to read it. The content of the book was fabulous. The author writes with authenticity and rich detail. Loved the book. I never understood anything about the Blackhawk Wars. I have a greater understanding of what happened during that time in the area where I live.
Tyler Is Not Here
Another wonderful book by my favorite author. If you didn't know, like me, there are six books on the history of whites conforming, lying, etc to get the land from the reds. This is equal in quality to the rest.

I enjoy reading all of Allan Eckert's works, and this volume is no exception. This is the last in his Winning of America Series and centers on the Black Hawk War, the culmination of the conquest of the Old Northwest Territories by the chicanery, military prowess, superior firepower and resources of the US Government of "Indian-hater" President Andrew Jackson and the limited fighting ability of Zachary Taylor, young Abraham Lincoln and Jefferson Davis. It is sad and full of pathos in describing the inexorable onslaught of white civilization young America, subduing an out-maned, brave and crafty leaders Black Hawk, White Cloud and their loose knit confederacy of tribes of Illinois, Fox, Sac and Pottawatomie between the years of 1804 to 1832. For this was the twilight of their civilization. Eckert's writing is not for the faint of heart, it and can be downright painful to read of how our society treated its indigenous peoples by forcing them from their ancestral planting grounds, destroying their villages, killing women and children mercilessly all the while sanctifying our early American heroes. It is history you will never read in high school, or for that matter in college, unless you are fortunate enough to have a history teacher that goes beyond the superficial treatment of the "Indian" Wars. We may be the "land of the free, and home of the brave", but we should not forget that we sometimes got here by less than honorable means. Do the means justify the end ? Eckert forces us to re-think our glorious "good old days".
