Pulitzer Prize, National Book Award, and Presidential Medal of Freedom awards have not dimmed David McCullough's zest for writing forthright and enthralling history that brings American ideals to life. "The Pioneers" traces the story of the earliest expansion West from the original Colonies, with the company of adventurers founding the first official settlements just across the Ohio River in the Northwest reserve. Marietta, Ohio, becomes the first home to New England transplants who struggle against Native Americans, but who also carry the ideals of universal education and principled opposition to slavery into the next century of the new nation. Solid research grounds McCullough's characteristically articulate narrative.
