Departing from the traditional confines of the history of American Indians, Gregory Evans Dowd carefully draws on ethnographic sources to recapture the beliefs, thoughts, and actions of four principal Indian nations - Delaware, Shawnee, Cherokee, and Creek.
PortraitGregory Evans Dowd is a professor of history and American Culture and Director of Native American Studies at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, and author of A Spirited Resistance: The North American Struggle for Unity, 1745-1815, also available from Johns Hopkins.
PressestimmenAngrily reject[s] the Eurocentric assumptions of works that center on big-chief-hero or on isolated tribes... [and] departs from such atomized approaches to describe the attempt to combat colonialism through a religiously charged, pan-Indian militant movement... [Dowd] is sophisticated and exceptionally self-aware, recognizing how indebted even his counter-history is to European assumptions, and he tells an important and persuasive story. -- James R. Kincaid New York Times Book Review
