This title will be released on May 7, 2019. I will buy it on that day. I am proud to hail from, or at least from near, the Old Northwest Territory (the Connecticut Western Reserve was not technically a part of the Territory).

David McCullough
The Pioneers: The Heroic Story of the Settlers Who Brought the American Ideal West


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 (1) education was available to all and (2) 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.
