The Largely Untold History of America's First Frontier

My two books on the settlement and early history of the Appalachian Frontier, "Pathfinders, Pioneers, & Patriots" and "When Courage Was Common" are available on-line at the URL below.  If you enjoy reading about our amazing ancestors whose sacrifice and many contributions have largely been overlooked in most traditional history books, you will find these books enlightening and hard to put down.  And I promise you will be left with a greater pride and appreciation for those who came before us.
