The Defenders tells the exciting and tragic stories of three great Indian leaders, who fought bravely for their people's freedom and their right to live on their own land. The battles took place in the Florida swamps, in the Midwest, and on the Western Plains, at a time when our nation was expanding rapidly. Lands were seized and thousand of people were killed or made captive in the name of progress. These stories are a part of the long struggle for human liberty in out country--as well as tragic chapters in the history of the first Americans.

We learned a lot about Native Americans from the Florida region -- their hardships and triumphs as they resisted being driven off their land. An informative read aloud for the family.
