First book in a long time that I couldn't put down. I stayed up until 4:00am to finish it up. The reader is the best in the industry and the content is amazing in detail. If you like early American Frontiersman stories, you'll love this one.

I am an incredible dork when comes to history. Unfortunately, I was never a big fan of history class. The reason was this: I have always been of the mind that history is a story - of people and places and experiences - but the people who write history books are not storytellers. Allan W Eckert is a masterful storyteller. As it tells you in the beginning of the this audiobook, he spent most of a decade tracking down and sifting through historical records, and specifically people's diaries, to weave together the stories and people he brings once more to life in this remarkable book. And it's all real. The people, their names, their lives, their stories. All real. I kept having to remind myself of that as I was listening/reading this book. It is a novel. It reads like a novel. But everything in it is historical fact. It is a beautiful amalgamation of history and literature. If you love history, biographies, or historical fiction (my personal favorite) you will LOVE this book! It is a must read for you! Happy Listening -Whitney

Excellent book well read though the mellifluous style of Mr foley can occasionally sound incongruous when describing atrocities or torture
I'll be surprised and delighted if I ever read / listen to a more engaging, thorough and plain interesting book than this.
