by Arthur Caswell Parker. Softbound, 240 pages, 5-1/2" x 8". This is the story of the famous and controversial Seneca chief and orator Red Jacket (Sagoyewatha, ca. 1750-1830), whose passionate and articulate defense of the old ways won the admiration of many, but also earned him the enmity of Chiefs Joseph Brant and Cornplanter. He is remembered as a vocal and persistentponent of foreign encroachment on the Iroquois, protesting bitterly against the sale of tribal lands and involvement in European-American disputes, missionary activities, and various efforts to "civilize" the Iroquois. This highly readable account followsRed Jacket from his early years along the Genesee River through the invasion of Seneca lands during the Revolutionary War, the Big Tree Treaty of 1797, and the rise of the prophet Handsome Lake.
