As settlers continued to encroach further west, however, Tecumseh stood firm and ready to fight them. Before America fought Britain in the War of 1812, they were engaged in Tecumseh's War around the Great Lakes. The fighting made the Indian leader famous and made a military hero (and eventually a president) out of William Henry Harrison, whose victory at Tippecanoe is considered the end of that war. Undeterred, Tecumseh allied with the British during the War of 1812 against the Americans, and he continued to fight on until he was killed at the Battle of the Thames. Without their leader, Tecumseh's Confederacy began to disintegrate rapidly.
Despite being one of their most tenacious opponents, Tecumseh almost immediately became a celebrated folk hero and respected leader in American history, all while continuing to be one of the most poignant symbols of resistance among Native Americans. The pan-Indian icon continues to be a household name across the United States today, nearly 200 years after his death.
American Legends: The Life of Tecumseh chronicles the amazing life of the Native American leader, examines his leadership of the Shawnee Confederacy, and analyzes his enduring legacy.

Please hire narrators who graduated High School --
Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
This is way too broad and generalized an account. No interesting details, no insights, it's like a broad book report somebody slap-dashed together the night before it was due. This has me quite concerned about the quality of the 'Charles Rivers Editors' books --
What do you think your next listen will be?
How did the narrator detract from the book?
He mispronounces words constantly i.e. pronounces avarice as 'avar-eyes', and cowardice as ' coward-eyes', usurpation as 'ooo-ser-pation', and numerous other words. Distracting and unacceptable.A BASIC UNDERSTANDING of English should be a prerequisite for reading an Audible book. It ruins the entire book if the reader's unqualified. And where are the editors, the producers, of these audible books -- aren't they there to oversee quality control?Amazing!
What else would you have wanted to know about Charles River Editors’s life?
Why he's in the book business -- and the question is absurd since the book is supposedly about Tecumseh.
Any additional comments?
