Description

They came on foot and by horseback, in wagons and on rafts, singly and by the score, restless, adventurous, enterprising, relentless, seeking a foothold on the future. European immigrants and American colonists, settlers and speculators, soldiers and missionaries, fugitives from justice and from despair - pioneers all, in the great and inexorable westward expansion defined at its heart by the majestic flow of the Ohio River. This is their story, a chronicle of monumental dimension, of resounding drama and impact set during a pivotal era in our history: the birth and growth of a nation.Drawing on a wealth of research, both scholarly and anecdotal - including letters, diaries, and journals of the era - Allan W. Eckert has delivered a landmark of historical authenticity, unprecedented in scope and detail.show more
