The Pioneers: The Heroic Story of the Settlers Who Brought the American Ideal West

The Pioneers: The Heroic Story of the Settlers Who Brought the American Ideal West

A well-researched and entertaining history–of Ohio.

Seriously, The Pioneers oversells the scope of this book. Manasseh Cutler and the Taming of the Northwest Territory might have framed it better.

Even so, I learned a lot about the settling of the OG West during a period now glossed over in American history.

★★★★☆
