A Panther Crosses Over by Sam Foster is a historical novel that unfolds after the French Indian War, which provided Great Britain with territorial gains in North America that resulted in colonial discontent, and ultimately to the American Revolution. The story is narrated from the perspective of the Native American tribes of the Northwest Territory who inhabited the land long before the settlers came. As more white settlers arrived, the tribes led by Tecumseh of the Shawnee tribe are determined to stay on their ancestral land. A natural leader with the gift of foresight, he could assemble fifty thousand warriors to fight the white settlers. Against him is the U.S. expeditionary force led by the equally capable William Henry Harrison. This conflict would climax in the decisive Battle of Tippecanoe.
Sam Foster’s A Panther Crosses reconstructs the momentous events leading to the Battle of Tippecanoe from the perspective of the Native American tribes and this makes the story a compelling read. Well researched and informative, it is about the struggle for survival of the indigenous people in the face of insurmountable odds. The first installment of a trilogy captures the fierce splendor of the time. With meticulous attention to detail, Foster transports his readers to 18th and 19th-century America and then into the hearts and minds of the novel’s protagonists. A master storyteller, he weaves together historical facts with a fertile imagination. The result is a thought-provoking novel that is a must-read not only for history enthusiasts but for readers of all ages.
