Osceola, Cochise, and Tecumseh are three Native American heroes who fought valiantly for their land and for their people. This book is divided into three parts--each part recounting the life of one of these great heroes. Their true stories are emotionally gripping and tragic, and Ann McGovern handles delicate topics, such as violence and racism, expertly for young readers. The narrative text is supplemented by black-and-white original source materials throughout (i.e. photographs, maps, portraits, a newspaper article).

--- - ! '"Unlike the United States Army, the Seminoles could not replace a lost warrior. Their warriors were becoming fewer and fewer. Most of their cattle had already been taken. They could not plant crops in swamps. Osceola knew they were facing starvation. He himself was ill. How much longer could he lead his people?"'
