Resurrecting Forgotten Histories: James Ellsberry’s “Dark Souls”

A Gripping Tale of Struggle and Redemption in the Northwest Territory between 1786 and 1816.


James Ellsberry, inspired by his visit to a reenactment of the War of 1812, felt compelled to explore the untold stories and perspectives of that era. This led him to embark on a research journey to uncover the forgotten narratives of the legendary Shawnee chief, Tecumseh, and his clash with Brigadier General, William Henry Harrison, Secretary of the Northwest Territory.

“Dark Souls” takes readers on an epic journey, immersing them in the life of an orphaned boy captured and raised by Indians. James McFadden comes of age as a man torn between a sense of loyalty to his race and his love for those who raised him. Against the backdrop of the continuing struggle between Great Britain and the newly formed United States, the story reveals the brutal conflict between the Native Americans and the encroaching white settlers.

Through “Dark Souls,” readers gain a profound understanding of the challenges faced by the Native Americans during this tumultuous period. The novel explores the devastating impact of westward expansion on their land, the lies, deceit and broken treaties that ultimately destroyed an entire culture.

For those who love drama, adventure, and exploring the unknown, “Dark Souls” is a story of love and hate that captivates readers; some have said, the characters would spring to life on the silver screen!
