Panther in The Sky By James Alexander Thom


What particularly distinguishes this splendidly vigorous and imaginative recreation of the life of the great Shawnee chief Tecumseh (1768-1813) is its bid to capture the spirit of Midwestern Indian culture from within,” commented PW.

 “Thom shows how, in honest, capable hands, fictionalized biography can add verisimilitude to the life and times of this extraordinary America….The dialogue has the ring of reality about it….Thom is able to get into the thoughts and emotions of his characters….”
Rich, colorful and bursting with excitement, this remarkable story turns James Alexander Thom’s power and passion for American history to the epic story of Tecumseh’s life and give us a heart-thumping novel of one man’s magnificent destiny–to unite his people in the struggle to save their land and their way of life from the relentless press of the white settlers.
