Description

" . . . the best account of how life was lived on the frontier of the Old Northwest that I have ever read . . . it will deepen your understanding of the American inheritance." --Harper's

These sketches tell of early settlement by a variety of movers seeking homes in a Beulah land, of the raising of rough cabins in primitive clearings, of farm life in the 1850s, and of the growth of politics and government. Logan Esarey, born in Perry County, Indiana, in 1873, was a pioneer in the development of regional history.
