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.
