      If I were recommending this book, I’d recommend it to sixth graders or middle-school teachers with students interested in American and/or Native history. There’s nothing wrong with the book’s content but the writing is so simplistic (amateurish in spots) and the analysis so shallow as to make it useless as a serious history of the period. As a narrative of events, though, it’s perfectly adequate. And as I have no great familiarity with the time or its actors, the book was revelatory in t [...]

      This is a terrific history of Osceola, the plight of the Creeks and the Seminole Wars. The research shines through, including the many pages of bibliography.Unlike too many history books, author, Hatch does what should be done: Not be afraid to state you don't know. Most histories state "facts" with little consideration of other viewpoints or counter "facts". Hatch throughout his book presents different views and then gives some reasoning for various sides, leaving conclusions to the reader. Som [...]

      Interesting subject which I have to date ignored or just haven't gotten a chance to read about. Just another example of our Native peoples being screwed by the government and overzealous, greedy white people. Kudos to the Seminoles for waging a guerrilla-style war that stymied the U.S. Army for many years. The one thing that spoils this book is the lack of maps to illustrate where this all took place. It seems a simple enough thing to provide?

      Author Hatch is a meticulous researcher -- something I appreciate -- and weaves together an engaging story of how a Native American warrior outwits U.S. Army troops as he battles to maintain his people's rights to their homeland. Osceola knows how to play the white man's game and leads the government on a merry chase over several years while earning the admiration of pro-Indian residents of the northern United States. The book deserves a space on my Native American history shelf.

      I thought overall it was good, I know its hard to get information about native Americans long dead. Wish someone had interviewed him and wrote a book while he was still alive. I now intend to read this author book on the Cheyenne war chief Black Kettle

      A great readWell written, thoroughly researched, and highly enlightening. An outstanding piece about an oft-forgotten piece of American history, and a remarkable man

      Written in a way to entertain as much as educate I enjoyed reading the history from Osceola's point of view. From a research point of view there were some dates missing but otherwise a good book.
