Black Hawk's autobiography
Iowa State University Press, Sep 30, 1999 - Biography & Autobiography - 106 pages
Black Hawk's biographer, Roger Nichols, introduces a fascinating document of frontier history: the autobiography of Sauk leader Black Hawk, first published in 1833. Using a variety of sources, the editor seeks the "authentic voice" of Black Hawk, who collaborated with a newspaperman and a U.S. interpreter.
In addition to Black Hawk's original text, Nichols provides a chronology, a bibliography, and a balanced account of Sauk/settler relations during a period of relentless American expansion.
