Eagle of Delight Earns the Literary Classics Seal of Approval

There is a portrait in the White House of a young Otoe Indian girl.  The girl, who was called Eagle of Delight, journeyed to Washington D.C. with her husband and other Plains Indian Chiefs to discuss peaceful relations with military leaders in 1821.  While few people are familiar with the story of Eagle of Delight, this young lady made quite an impression during her brief time in Washington D.C.

Author Jean A. Lukesh has crafted a fascinating work of non-fiction in which she has skillfully compiled fact and conjecture to piece together a glimpse into the life of a teenage Plains Indian girl who became "the Darling of Washington D.C. Society" in the early 1800s.

Eagle of Delight is a quick read which is as fascinating as it is informative.  Eagle of Delight comes highly recommended and has earned the Literary Classics Seal of Approval.
