    CHARACTERS Æ The Pioneers The PioneersThis book is infuriating The fact that books that are so blatantly offensive towards Indigenous people can still be published in 2019 is disgusting This book ignores decades of scholarship by Native and allied historians of the region in favor of nationalist propaganda Skip this and read Susan Sleeper Smith's book Indigenous Prosperity and American Conuest instead which covers the Ohio River valley in a similar

    CHARACTERS Æ The Pioneers The PioneersThe summer is heating up; school is finally out and for me that means reading a variety of books about Americana and what makes the country a great place to live I have lived in Ohio for nearly twelve years and admittedly know little about the state’s history besides the unit my kids study in fourth grade social studies They do have an excellent teac

    CHARACTERS Æ The Pioneers The Pioneers25 There were parts I enjoyed but parts that were flitting all over the place I have been to Marietta many times Love it there so it was interesting to see how it was named Also the settling of parts of the country I had never read before Strange to think that when my state Illinois was admitted into the union in 1818 the total population was only 36000 Enjoyed the ending parts with John uincy Adams that was to

    CHARACTERS Æ The Pioneers The PioneersGoing into this book with little information I picked it up based on the merits of David McCullough’s earlier books From the start I was immediately struck by its excessive uantity of detail the multitude of individuals referred to and that the prose did not flow well I went to Simon Schuster’s book website searching for clarity “Pulitzer Prize–winning historian David McCullough rediscovers an important and dramatic chapter in the American story—the settling of the Northwest Territory by dauntless pioneers who overcame incredible hardships to build a community based on ideals that would come to define our countryAs part of the Treaty of Paris in which Great Britain recognized t

    CHARACTERS Æ The Pioneers The Pioneers“The Northwest Ordinance was designed to guarantee what would one day be known as the American way of life”One reads a David McCullough book because one knows they are going to learn about people who shaped our world but whose stories don’t make the textbooks People like the remarkable Ephraim Cutler A man who is almost single handily responsible for slavery never entering the Ohio Territory“The Pioneers The Heroic Story of the Settlers who Brought the American Ideal West” is not as good as some McCullough but still very good none the less Essentially the text focuses on the settlement of Ohio which in turn opened up the Northwest Territory As an Ohio native and current resident I really loved learning so much about my hom

    CHARACTERS Æ The Pioneers The PioneersDavid McCullough is one of my favorite historians He won two Pulitzer Prizes in 1993 and 2002 for his biographies of Truman and John Adams The book starts out discussing the Northwest Ordinance of 1787 but the majority of the book follows a number of families who settle the North Bank of the Ohio River The book is well writing and researched McCullough provides an excellent description of the Ohio River forests and mountains of the west The time frame of the book is from 1787 to about 1863 McCullough provides a great picture of the movement westward I enjoyed the story of the coonskin library This book would be a great summer family reading projectI read this as an audiobook downloaded from Audible The book is ten hours and twenty three minutes John Bedford Lloyd does a good job narrating the book Lloyd is an actor and long time audiobook narrator He won an Earphone Award and the

    CHARACTERS Æ The Pioneers The PioneersUnfortunately especially in this day and age people want their beliefs and their political messagesrhetoric justified in every book they read or don't read for that matter The reviewsratings for this book will surely reflect that since revisiting well known early Americans and their roles in Native American treatment and slavery are hot topics today Westward expansion hits on both topicsMcCullough has never pandered to this political crowd on either side and this book is no different Anyone who reads his books knows that he is always in
