1858. In the preparation of this volume, the author's attention was drawn, to some extent, to the history of the Shawanoe tribe of Indians: and he has accordingly prefixed to the main work, a brief historical narrative of this wandering and warlike nation, with biographical sketches of several of its most distinguished chiefs. In addition to several outside sources of information, the author had personally, at different times, visited the frontiers of Ohio and the Indians, for the purpose of conversing with the Indians and the pioneers of that region, who happened to be acquainted with Tecumseh and his brother; and by these visits, was enabled to enrich his narrative with some amusing and valuable anecdotes.
