Description

The first book in the six-volume series known as The Winning of America in hardcover and Narratives of America in paperback. 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. Winner of high critical acclaim and many awards. Reprinted in foreign languages and in paperback editions. Over a million copies have been sold.

 Due to a Spambomb attack, our contact form is having issues!  

A notification about our contact form inquiries:  A few weeks back,  we endured a spam-bomb attack.  We received literally tens of thousands of emails, via our contact form on the CONTACT page.  Our web guys leapt into action, and put in a "ReCaptcha" element, to try to stop the spam bombs.   And it worked, hooray. However, it apparently also caused a glitch, in which we have NOT received all the submitted inquiries, from real customers and prospective customers. We apologize for this and we're in the process of fixing it. In the meantime, if you do not hear from us same-day, or at the absolute latest, within 24 hours, please email us directly, not using the CONTACT form, but the email address on our CONTACT page in the "How to Reach Us" column, thank you. We apologize for any inconvenience and we hope it's all resolved shortly. 

Thank you for your understanding.
