The Remarkable Breed of Men

When we think of the frontiersmen, we envision rugged and fearless individuals who were willing to face the dangers of an untamed land. These men, often rough and illiterate, sought refuge from their past crimes in the wilderness of mid-America. Venturing into the beautiful yet treacherous territories of West Virginia, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois, they encountered not only the perils of nature but also the relentless attacks of Native Americans.

A Fight for Control

As the white settlers moved westward, they clashed with the indigenous tribes who claimed the vast virgin territory. With names like George Rogers Clark, Daniel Boone, Arthur St. Clair, Anthony Wayne, Simon Girty, and William Henry Harrison, the frontiersmen became the central figures in Allan W. Eckert's compelling history.

A Hero's Journey

Within this gripping narrative, one man stands out - Simon Kenton. Renowned for his skills as a woodsman, fighter, and scout, Kenton played a crucial role in opening the Northwest Territory to settlement. By the age of 18, he had already earned a reputation as a frontier hero, known for his physical strength, endurance, dignity, and kindness.

A Doomed Cause and a Dying Race

Yet, Eckert's masterful storytelling unveils another captivating tale within The Frontiersmen. It is the story of Tecumseh, a brilliant Shawnee chief and a remarkable leader. Tecumseh's intellect and charisma allowed him to form a formidable Indian confederacy, which came agonizingly close to halting the relentless advance of the white man. Like Kenton, Tecumseh embodied the virtues of his people, and Eckert's narrative beautifully conveys the grandeur and tragedy of the American Indian.

An Epic Collaboration

The Frontiersmen, penned by Allan W. Eckert and captivatingly narrated by Tantor Audio, is an enthralling tale that brings to life the courage, grit, and sacrifice of America's heroes. Through vivid storytelling, Eckert transports us to a time when the wilderness beckoned and the frontier loomed, where men like Kenton and Tecumseh etched their names into the annals of history. It is a story of triumph and loss, of the clash of civilizations, and the enduring spirit of those who shaped a nation.
