The Frontiersmen by Allan Eckert

 
  $19.00  
     
 

Frontiersmen by Allan EckertThe first book in the six-volume Winning the America series. Frontiersmen follows on the life and exploits of Simon Kenton, the Girty brothers and the early life of Tecumseh as white expansion crosses the Ohio River in violation of earlier agreements, and as the Indians fight bitterly to stop it.

One of Eckert's most popular books, this is a narrative history of the opening of Kentucky and the great Northwest Territory -- Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin and part of Minnesota -- during the period 1755 to 1836, through events of the French and Indian War, the Revolutionary War and the War of 1812. It tells of the white man's push into the territory occupied by such tribes of Indians as the Shawnees, Potawatomies, Wyandots (Hurons), Ottawas, Chippewas (Ojibwas), Miamis, Kickapoos, Winnebagoes, Menominees, Sac and Fox, detailing the Indian wars that erupted on the frontier and following, in particular, the lives of such frontier notables as Simon Kenton, Tecumseh, Chief Logan, Daniel Boone, Benjamin Logan, Little Turtle, William Henry Harrison and many others.
