Publisher's Synopsis
Speakers include Chief Joseph, Sitting Bull, Tecumseh, Seattle, Geronimo, Crazy Horse, and many lesser-known leaders, whose compelling words are graced by forceful metaphors and vivid imagery.

An introductory note puts each speech in context. In the first line of the first speech, given in 1540 by Acuera (Timucua), we hear, "Others of your accursed race have, in years past, poisoned our peaceful shores." That jarring opener sets the tone for the large majority of the speeches.
