About the Book

“Tom Bluefoot, Wyandot Scout, General “Mad Anthony” Wayne, and the Battle of Fallen Timbers” is a historical novel from the point of view of a young American Indian. After much difficulty, Tom serves as an interpreter and confidante of General Wayne in one of the most decisive engagements in United States history. Abused by an alcoholic father and the victim of vicious prejudice, Toom-She-chi-Kwa (Tom) survives by his wit and perseverance. So effective is his service that he becomes instrumental in the successful completion of the important Greenville Treaty of 1795.
