Most of Alexander Posey's short and remarkable life was devoted to literary pursuits. Through a widely circulated satirical column published under the pseudonym Fus Fixico, he did much to document and draw attention to conditions in Indian Territory. He rose to prominence among the Creeks and played a leading role as spokesman on a number of serious political issues. Daniel F. Littlefield Jr. has written the first full biography of Alexander Posey, a pioneer of American Indian literature and a shaper of public opinion.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A vivid portrait of a complex man in the volatile world of Oklahoma Indian life from 1873 to 1908 . . . The book combines excellent historical scholarship with penetrating insight into a complicated personality and the turbulent politics of Indian Territory."-Choice * Choice *
"[A] splendid portrayal of Posey as a pacesetter in Indian literature and a cogent political force in expressing Creek public opinion about allotment, tribal termination, and the many Congressional restrictions placed on land ownership."-Tulsa World * Tulsa World *
"A well-researched biography, Alex Posey also provides fresh insight into the Creek nation and its society during the turmoil of the late 1800s and the turn of this century. . . . A model for understanding other tribes."-Journal of American History * Journal of American History *
