By Great Rivers:
Lives on the Appalachian Frontier

  by Robert B. Swift

By Great Rivers book
This new book tells the story of 18th century people (men and women, Native Americans, colonial agents, missionaries, fur traders, Indian captives, surveyors) living in the Appalachian region of eastern and western Pennsylvania, western New York and Ohio. Many key historic events occurred at the strategic forks of four rivers where these people lived or visited--the Forks of the Delaware (Easton, PA), Forks of the Susquehanna (Sunbury, PA), Forks of the Ohio (Pittsburgh, PA) and the Forks of the Muskingum (Coshocton, OH) and the Niagara River, pathway between the Great Lakes.

Each historical figure is given a brief yet thorough description and the book as a whole includes quotes from contemporary travelers, diarists and prominent figures like Benjamin Franklin to provide context to help readers understand the period.

Paperback, 2019, 6" x 9", 112 pages, multiple b/w and full color illustrations & photos, $21.99.
