Publisher Comments:

Against the background of such names as George Rogers Clark, Daniel Boone. Arthur St. Clair, Anthony Wayne, Simon Girty, and William Henry Harrison, Eckert has recreated the life of one of America's most outstanding heroes, Simon Kenton. Kenton's role in opening the Northwest Territory to settlement more than rivaled that of his friend Daniel Boone. By his eighteenth birthday, Kenton had already won frontier renown as woodsman, fighter, and scout. His incredible physical strength and endurance, his great dignity and innate kindness made him the ideal prototype of the frontier hero. The Frontiersmen is equally the story of one of history's greatest leaders, whose misfortune was to be born to a doomed cause and a dying race. Tecumseh, the brilliant Shawnee chief, welded together by the sheer force of his intellect and charisma and incredible Indian confederacy that thrust of the white man's westward expansion. Like Kenton, Tecumseh was the paragon of his people's virtues.

This is primarily the story of Simon Kenton, Daniel Boone, George Rogers Clark, Blue Jacket, Tecumseh, Anthony Wayne, and William Henry Harrison. The Shawnee, Delaware, Mingo, Wyandots, Miamis, and many other Indian tribes are included. It covers the years from just before the Revolutionary War, until just after the War of 1812. It covers the settlement of Kentucky and Ohio extensively, through acquiring their statehoods and the first 3 governors of Ohio, and the acquisition of the Northwest Territory, which at that time was Indiana and land west of there.
This book is all factual, every item really happened, and it is written as a narrative, which makes it the best history book I have ever read. It ought to be a required reading assignment for every history class in Kentucky and Ohio schools.
