Item description for Starved Rock and the Illiniwek by Richard Applegate & Douglas Weaver...

Overview
Taking place in the 1760s, this historical novel is based on legendary events that led up to the virtual demise of the once-powerful Illinois Indian nation. The relationship between Yellow Hawk, a half-breed Illiniwek warrior, and Dawn of the Potawatomies, is frowned upon by his tribe and hers, and she is reluctant to commit herself to him. A constant problem for Yellow Hawk is Shattuc, his antagonist since childhood, who resents his mixed blood and would like nothing more than to have his scalp.

Reviews - What do customers think about Starved Rock?

Starved Rock: Illuminating some great Indian history.  Feb 7, 2008
Thoroughly entertaining. The author nicely blends fact and fiction, with an appreciation of the actual historical events that took place. It was a pleasant surprise to learn where some of the names we are familiar with came from (e.g. Illini,Pontiac,Peoria). I think Starved Rock is a book everyone would enjoy reading.
 
Interesting  Jan 29, 2007
Being from North Central Illinois, I am familiar with Starved Rock and the surrounding area. This book as easy to read and I enjoyed learning more about the area's history.
