English ignorance: did the author of the book take the title from the last line of the poem? I've read the book but never heard of American Names. I like it, thanks for the introduction.

Yes, the author, Dee Brown, took the title of his history of American Indians from this poem. Don't you love the colorful names of some of these places. I live not too far from Medicine Hat and Moose Jaw in Canada.
