Item description for BLACKHAWK: THE ELUSIVE WARRIOR by S. WYMBS HARRIET...
From my earliest days, an Indian Chief named Black Hawk, filled my life with haunting fears. Whenever I wanted to be thoroughly scared, I would ask my mother to tell me the story of Black Hawk's raids on the early settlers in Rock Island County, Illinois. She would tell me that this dreadful Indian hated the white people who settled on what used to be his people's land. He kept them perpetually stirred up and fearful for their lives. Children went to sleep wondering Black Hawk's screeching warriors would come in the night to scalp them. My ancestors, the William T. Brashars, were among the families that Black Hawk most disliked. He destroyed their crops, killed or stole their farm animals and took their personal possessions. This is the Black Hawk story.
