Summary
"Beginning with transcriptions of speeches by Pontiac, Red Jacket, and Tecumseh, and letters penned by the Reverend Samson Occom, and extending through a range of fiction and nonfiction works by Black Hawk, Mourning Dove, N.

In his previous book, Hamilton charted how a vital blending of natural and human law in which the self was subordinated to both the divine and a larger human community gradually declined (from the late nineteenth century onward) into an eventual hyperautonomy in which an effectively deified self stood in sterile isolation from the rest of the world.
