The Devil's Own

Excerpt from The Devil's Own: A Romance of the Black Hawk War Even with my small knowledge of such things it was plain enough to be seen there existed deadly hatred be tween these two, and that Keokuk's desire for peace with the whites alone postponed an outbreak. I knew then but little of the cause. The Indian tongue was strange to me, and the interpreter failed to make clear the under lying motive, yet I managed to gather that, in spite of treaty, Black Hawk refused to leave his oldtime hunting grounds to the east of the river, and Openly threatened war. The commandant trusted Keokuk, with faith that his peaceful counsels would prevail; but when Black Hawk angrily left the chamber and my eyes followed him to his waiting canoe, my mind was convinced that this was not destined to be the end - that only force of arms would ever tame his savage spirit.
