I bought this hoping to see well-conceived, annotated genealogical work that would be useful to Shawnee peoples. Its a collection of myth, family fictions mixed with real historical peoples. As such, it is useless to anyone with a serious interest in discovering their Shawnee roots.

This book is better to understand than the Lightfoot book I bought. However not sure all the information that is in it is correct. Have checked with other historians working on the Duncan and Lightfoot Deal and other families pertaining to the woman from the Deer Clan Cherokee Indians. In this book it states that Dorcas was married to being number one wife of Chief Robert Benge when all other records point a finger as to being the wife of John the Trader Benge. For this point the children of Dorcas who had Benge child why would he rather take upon himself to be called Duncan from a white man than to be known as Benge from an Indian Chief that was a Cherokee Chief with a little Metis included (Metis being white). So good point.

In this book it does point out that not all Cherokees are pur blood due to the inter marriages with other tribes like the Shawnee and Crow and other indians that roamed the different sections of Indian Territory to include marriage of White woman and White men. So that puts a flag up to which trible council do you belong in cherokee or shawnee.

This book is informative but one has to decide which one is correct this one or the one that Starr put out about his family of the Cherokees that took the trail of tears or the old settlers and many other books out there.

Now there is a book 2 and I haven't decied to purchase this yet, due to having looked at that one on the file of amazon.com where you can look at some pages it looks almost like the one I have already puchased and not sure if its worth buying and keeping.

Don Greene does make it interesting to read and you can follow along in the book better to know a little more of the American Indians ...

If you suspect Native American's in your background, this is the book! If your family was moving west and into the wilderness at the early years of this Nation... you need this book; and the sequel Vol II. The numbers system within each record is a little confusing. The only thing wrong with this book is that it doesn't have another sequel like it. Vol II is wonderful as well; but, they each have a different purpose and address it directly. I call both of these essential books for early American genealogists. And for the history buff it is great for keeping historic figures who were on the frontiers very early on, more easily defined than through movies and boring genealogical charts. Forget the wild west: the area he covers in this volume alone is what we've all needed to find our ancestors who seemed to have fallen into some abyss where history books are concerned. This is the number one reference book for those real trail blazers who married into the tribes.

This book seems to contain a lot of information, but there is no explanation as to how to read it. It uses what is probably genealogical "shorthand," but with no explanation as to what the abbreviations mean, it's like reading code. After learning recently that I have a Shawnee ancestor, I was looking forward to getting more information. This book is disappointingly unhelpful.

While doing genealogy research I came across a Shawnee ancestor. Since the information is very sketchy I had a difficult time knowing who was who and if the relationship was correct. I found Don's book referenced online, ordered it, and I have used the information to shape that part of my tree. It is a great resource! I highly recommend it.

This book has helped and opened my eyes to the Shawnee Indian Heritage that runs in my family the I did not know existed. The book along with the second book on Shawnee Heritage has really helped tremendously.
