About the Book

Black Hawk, a Sauk warrior and warrior, is the subject of Benjamin Drake's book The Great Indian Chief of the West, or Life and Adventures of Black Hawk. Black Hawk is portrayed by Drake as a brave and honest chief who struggled to protect his people's territory and way of life against advancing American expansion. He gives an account of Black Hawk's early years, his ascent to military leadership, and his participation in the Black Hawk War of 1832. Drake also goes into depth about what happened before Black Hawk gave himself up and was imprisoned. The forcible eviction of Native People from their homes and the rising hostility between settlers and Native nations in the early 19th century are among the historical contexts he also offers for the events he narrates. Overall, Black Hawk is sympathetically portrayed in The Great Indian Chief of the West, which also illuminates Native People' difficulties at a critical juncture in American history.

Benjamin Drake

American novelist, poet, and historian Benjamin Drake (1794–1841) is most known for his literary works and historical studies of Cincinnati, Ohio. Drake's father was a well-known physician in Cincinnati, where he spent the most of his childhood. After completing his legal education, he decided to pursue a career in writing and publishing. He wrote numerous books on subjects including the early history of Ohio and the lives of Native American leaders. The history of the Shawnee chiefs who launched a rebellion against the United States at the beginning of the 19th century, "The Life of Tecumseh and His Brother the Prophet," is Drake's most well-known book.
