John Anderson’s narrative history Renegade is a fascinating and authentic picture of colonial times—it is a piece of Truth. The book describes how racist myths were invented and exploited by white European colonists to dispossess and remove Indians from the land. It is a piece of the Truth that needed to be dug up from a long forgotten past.”

Grandfather Lee Standing Bear Moore (Gadoda Yonv), esteemed elder of the

Manataka American Indian Council and editor of Smoke Signal News

Not all the pioneers who came from Europe and settled in the colonies were ‘good guys.’ Not all left us a heritage that we can be proud of. One of the worst of our forefathers was Simon Girty, who left us a heritage of racism, fully described in John Anderson’s Renegade.”

Mary Holliman, president, Pocahontas Press, Inc.,

and director of research at Virginia Tech
