Praise for Panther in the Sky

"[James Alexander] Thom shows how, in honest, capable hands, fictionalized biography can add verisimilitude to the life and times of this extraordinary America. . . . The dialogue has the ring of reality about it. . . . Thom is able to get into the thoughts and emotions of his characters."--Dee Brown, Los Angeles Times

"The story of a bruised and threatened culture . . . Thom's rendering of the Shawnee world is authoritative. Tecumseh is a wonderful character. . . . Panther in the Sky is bloody, brave and honorable."--The Washington Post Book World

"Through Thom's masterful storytelling and his passion for Shawnee lore, customs and especially mysticism, you continually have the feeling that maybe, these simple, proud individuals can win back their land and have life go on as 'Our Grandmother, ' that great spiritual force, intended."--Chicago Tribune

"A work of such sweep and compassion that it blurs the demarcation between novel and history . . . Totally admirable."--The Cincinnati Enquirer

"A brillinant job . . . meticulously researched . . . It is a detailed story of the almost mythical life of [Tecumseh] and that of the Shawnee of his time."--Kansas City Star

"A spellbinding novel about the life of Tecumseh . . . The book is almost epic in its scope. . . . Thom has carefully researched his facts. He has the care of a historian to go with the skills of the seasoned novelist."--The Indianapolis Star

"Riveting . . . Historical fiction at its finest."--Booklist
