Collectible; Very Good. No marks or writing observed in text. Binding tight and square. Gently read. Written by a noted historian, this piece chronicles the bloody 25 years that was the winning of the Eastern Frontier, centered at Fort Henry (known today as Wheeling, West Virgina). This books brings back to you the days of...Daniel Boone...Simon Kenton...Lewis Wetzel...the Girty brothers...Sam McColloch...Betty Zane, etc. 'In a time and place where uncommon heroism and courage were commonplace...' no lover of the history of heroic men and woman will want to put this book down unfinished..........'All history is through the filter of time but I believe Hintzen has tried to minimize the 'bias drift' as much as possible. There is so much we don't know about this period even though many have written about it. This is a well written and researched book and should be part of any collection of works dealing with the sweeping changes after the French and Indian wars. I would not call it exhaustive by any criteria because there are broader cultural issues on a global scale that are part of the dynamics but would mostly distract from this treatment of the raw and very dangerous lives of those who acted on those circumstances for their own personal motives. I believe William Hintzen has achieved a worthy document that struggles with the conflicting information that comes to us from a time of mortal conflict, illiteracy, stress, pain and transcendent endurance.
