े New The Frontiersmen: A Narrative ५ ePUB Author Allan W Eckert ট े New The Frontiersmen: A Narrative ५ ePUB Author Allan W Eckert ট The frontiersmen were a remarkable breed of men They were often rough and illiterate, sometimes brutal and vicious, often seeking an escape in the wilderness of mid America from crimes committed back east In the beautiful but deadly country which would one day come to be known as West Virginia, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois, often than not they left their bones to bleach beside forest paths or on the banks of the Ohio River, victims of Indians who claimed the vast virgin territory and strove to turn back the growing tide of whites These frontiersmen are the subjects of Allan Eckert s dramatic history 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 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 Yet there is another story to The Frontiersmen It 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 an incredible Indian confederacy that came desperately close to breaking the thrust of the white man s westward expansion Like Kenton, Tecumseh was the paragon of his people s virtues, and the story of his life, in Allan Eckert s hands, reveals most profoundly the grandeur and the tragedy of the American Indian No less importantly, The Frontiersmen is the story of wilderness America itself, its penetration and settlement, and it is Eckert s particular grace to be able to evoke life and meaning from the raw facts of this story In The Frontiersmen not only do we care about our long forgotten fathers, we live again with them Researched for seven years, The Frontiersmen is the first in Mr Eckert s The Winning of America series.
