At the turn of the nineteenth century, the British Empire is at the height of its ascendancy; Napoleonic France is struggling to maintain its position as a world power; the incumbent American empire is quickly expanding its territory, while the Native peoples struggle to establish their own confederacy. Laxer focusses on the Native struggle for nationhood and sovereignty; the battle between the British Empire and the United States over Upper and Lower Canada; and the unlikely friendship and political alliance between Shawnee chieftain Tecumseh and Major-General Sir Isaac Brock. 2012.
