Life of Black Hawk
In the early 19th century, Sauk and Fox Indians resisted the establishment of white settlements in western Illinois. The brief but violent conflict was known as the Black Hawk War, and the Indians' dynamic leader was named Black Hawk. This powerful autobiography by the vanquished chieftain offers unparalleled glimpses of Native American culture.
