Chief Logan was one of the most enigmatic Indians of his time. The son of a great Iroquois chief, Thomas Jefferson would call him the greatest orator of the 18th century. And yet this once great, kind and gentle friend of whites and spiritual leader of his people would see his life spiral downward; committing him to wander his remaining years on the frontier a tortured and broken man.

Logan grew up at Shikellamyís Town along the West Branch of the Susquehanna River yet his world fame would come in his later years. This famous 18th century Indian is better known as Chief Logan and this anthology will help you to better understand this complicated man. The first book is Logan the Mingo by Franklin B. Sawvel which explains Loganís life in an easy and understanding way. The second selection published in 1851 by Brantz Mayer 1851, endeavors to explain the Cresap/Greathouse controversy and how Chief Logan came to lay the blame for his families murders at the hands of Michael Cresap when in fact the Greathouse gang was responsible. This tragic turn of events led to ďLoganís LamentĒ, the most famous words ever spoken by an American Indian. The sadness and sorrow from those words will echo through time immortal. Finally is Ron Wenningís 1997 article Chief Logan: Friend, Foe or Fiction uncovers who the real Chief Logan really was.

Loganís last years would be one filled with melancholy and sadness and he would be destined to wander the Ohio Frontier a broken and dejected man. His life had come full circle. From his days as a child playfully roaming the beautiful Buffalo Valley of the West Branch of the Susquehanna River at his fatherís side was reduced at the end to begging for whiskey among the officers at Fort Detroit, somehow comforting his tormented soul in death.

224 pages, hardback, $34.95.
