Tecumseh!


This is the trade paperback transcript of the script for the Outdoor Drama of this title, produced six days per week each summer since 1973 at the great Sugarloaf Mountain Amphitheater near Chillicothe, Ohio. In a three-hour time frame, this drama, in two acts, depicts the life of Tecumseh and his efforts to drive the whites out of the Ohio country and restore it to his fellow Shawnees and other tribes.  He is very nearly successful in his endeavor until betrayed by his disobedient and megalomanic brother, Tenskwatawa -- also known as The Prophet.  More than two million people have seen this production, which features equity actors and top quality drama, and it is rated among the three best outdoor dramas in the United States.  Originally published as a trade paperback in 1971 by Little, Brown & Co., Boston, Mass.
