Allan Eckert's "Johnny Logan: Shawnee Spy" tells the story of a Shawnee Indian boy named Spemica Lawba and his brief but interesting role in history.

Born in 1774 to the older sister of Tecumseh in the Shawnee's central Ohio village of Chillicothe, Spemica Lawba is thrust into a world turned upside down for the Indians who are desperately fighting for their land and for their very survival against an ever increasing flood of white settlers pouring into the Ohio Country. An American militia force from Kentucky, led by General Benjamin Logan, attacks Chillicothe in 1786, burning the town to the ground and taking the young Spemica Lawba prisoner. Logan later decides to adopt the Shawnee and gives him the name Johnny Logan. Following the end of hostilities in the Ohio Valley, Johnny is returned to his native people, but soon finds himself at odds with his former family. When Tecumseh begins to stir up the tribes against the United States before the outbreak of the War of 1812, Johnny decides to prove his loyalty to the Americans by serving as a spy against his own people.

Eckert's historical novels are always good and a delight to read. They also can help to introduce little known history to a much wider audience. This book was long out of print, but is thankfully available again. Recommended as an addition to his Winnging of America series, and to his great books "Dark and Bloody River" and "A Sorrow in Our Hearts".
I recieved the book in the time promised, and it was in good condition!
As with all of Allan Eckert books is historical correct in a narrative form. Very good reading.
