The frontiersmen were a remarkable breed of men. They were often rough and illiterate, sometimes brutal and vicious, often seeking an escape in the wilderness of mid-America from crimes committed back east. In the beautiful but deadly country which would one day come to be known as West Virginia, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois, more often than not they left their bones to bleach beside forest paths or on the banks of the Ohio River.

I have read this book several times and listening I gained a greater understanding of the life and time of notable people late 1700s frontier. Allen Eckert books are awsome and provide a picture of frontier life in Kentucky,Ohio, and Indiana. Hope more come out in audio form.
