The Pioneers by David McCullough


The Pioneers is the story of the courageous first settlers of the great Northwest Territory, a vast American wilderness to which the Ohio River was the gateway and where education was available to all and slavery was prohibited.

The Pioneers is in the tradition of classics like The Great Bridge and 1776, for its portrait of unsung American heroes engaged in a great adventure that shaped our history. In this case, the story is told through three generations of an extraordinary family that explored and settled the frontier.
