William Henry Harrison Biography

Remember that Indian a history class we have to take in elementary school? Willaim Henry Harrison seems to loom large. Well, there is a new biography of him and the following comes from H-Net Reviews:
"All criticism aside, Owens presents a very readable and enlightening biography of William Henry Harrison. The material is well situated within the historiography and takes advantage of the Harrison papers painstakingly collected by the Indiana Historical Society. It provides valuable insight into the ways in which federal policy worked on the ground through the filters of individual context and local politics. And in very important ways it fleshes out the life of a man who had a far greater impact on early American expansion than many realize."
