A book of this nature will appeal to those who are interested in a readable, historically accurate account of the early struggles for supremacy in the Old Northwest from the end of the Revolution to the Battle of Tippecanoe. The author is a historian writing in an attractive style and securing his material from a wide variety of sources. The greater part of the book is based on the letters written to the war department by Gov. Wm H. Harrison. References are also made to a bibliography of practically one hundred volumes.
