The Other Trail of Tears: The Removal of the Ohio Tribes
5 of 5 stars
I got this as a digital library book and loved every bit of it. It is an easy read and fills in the huge 30 something year gap in history regarding what happened between the end of the War of 1812 and how the Ohio Indians moved across th...

The Victory with No Name: The Native American Defeat of the First American Army
5 of 5 stars
I was excited to see a new book on one of my favorite periods of US history. I've read many accounts of this battle and events which were included in other books, as well as "Wabash 1791: St Clair's defeat" by John Winkler that came out ...

That Dark and Bloody River
5 of 5 stars
I have read other Eckert books but I will admit I put this one off because of its size. It is a great book packed with much information told in an entertaining way. You really should read all the notes that enhance the story. Some of th...

Destiny of the Republic: A Tale of Madness, Medicine and the Murder of a President
5 of 5 stars
Quite easily the best historical bio I've ever read. The author should be proud. I think that even a person not interested or one who doesn't read historical material would enjoy this as it reads like an exciting novel. Candice Miller re...

Panther in the Sky
5 of 5 stars
Easily one the the finest accounts of the Shawnee leaders life and struggle. I walked away from the book with a greater sense and understanding of this time period and the other players such as Open Door (his brother The Prophet) Star Wa...

I carried this book with me everywhere when I first got into history from this time period in SW Ohio. The authors did great amounts of research for this book. Indispensable and highly recommended if you are into history of this area and...

The Shawnee Prophet
4 of 5 stars
I put off reading this book because I too bought into the folk hero status of Tenskwatawa's more famous brother Tecumseh. However, it is wonderfully sourced and he makes an excellent case that The Prophet was the first major leader of wh...

Mr. Jefferson's Hammer: William Henry Harrison and the Origins of American Indian Policy
4 of 5 stars
Maybe someday we will get a modern A-Z book on William Henry Harrison. Detailed information on Harrison is hard to come by unless you go to the older puff pieces that were written shortly after he died. He doesn't get the full Presidenti...

WPA Guide to Cincinnati [reprint of Cincinnati, A Guide to the Queen City and its Neighbors, 1943]
4 of 5 stars
This is a 1987 reprint of a book from 1943. I got lucky and found a new paperback copy on clearance at the Cincinnati Museum Center for $4. While many items in this book are out of date, long gone or long forgotten, I kept this book in m...

A Child of the Revolution: William Henry Harrison and His World, 1773-1798
4 of 5 stars
The title makes it clear that this is not a full bio of William Henry Harrison. The author also makes it clear that there is scant evidence on WHH's early life and much what is in the book is at times somewhat speculative yet with ample ...

Johnny Logan: Shawnee Spy
4 of 5 stars
A nice easy short read which is rare with an Allan Eckert book. I was bit dubious of this when I picked it up but it was a really great story. He filled in some gaps of the story I already know but didn't go into too much detail on some ...

Morgan's Great Raid: The Remarkable Expedition from Kentucky to Ohio

Morgan's Raid cut through the Cincinnati area where I live and folks have been recently doing a great job with markers and signs along this path. I decided to seek out more information on this Civil War event and found this new book. It ...

A great book on a misunderstood President during a relatively ignored period of American history. These were dangerous times with much violence and class struggles as America tried to emerge as a world power commercially and militarily. ...

The Frontiersmen
4 of 5 stars
So many people told me to read this book. I'll admit that I did not want to like it despite the subject being right in line with my interests. I was a pretty hardened, "just the facts" kind of person when it came to history and the notio...

The Gods of Prophetstown: The Battle of Tippecanoe and the Holy War for the American Frontier
4 of 5 stars
I was most intrigued by the religious aspect of the story that is generally left out when examining this time period. There was a religious struggle occurring in the US in this era between spiritualist Christians and Deists which in turn...

Thanks to the digital age, older regionally released books like this can be enjoyed by people like myself. I doubt I ever would have read this book it my library didn't carry the ebook. It is a nice short easy read that fills in some de...
