Well balanced, if brief, biography of Black Hawk. It includes a really good look at conflicts between white settlers and the Native Americans, in particular with cultural and racial conflicts. I actually learned quite a few things. Some of the titles published by this publisher can be a big miss. I must say, however, that the books they do about Native Americans tribes and leaders are quite good.

Good insights into Blackhawk's culture. The why and wherefore of why he fought are all here. This book is very relevant to us, as we live in the area that once was home to this great chief.
