Thanks for the tip. Just ordered it from the library!"The Pioneers" by David McCullough.
A study of the settlement of the western expansion into the Ohio area in the 1780's.
A place I know little about.
Big fan of his writing. His work is always well researched.
His book, "The Greater Journey: Americans in Paris" on the emergence of great American artists in France and "Mornings on Horseback" about Teddy Roosevelt are just wonderful.
