Compiled in 1860 but based on earlier source material, this evocative work captures the grim realities and challenges of early American expansion and Western settlement through tales of pioneering women and their families, including the wife and daughters of Daniel Boone. The stories, dating from the French and Indian War through the 1850s, recount desperate situations from the lives of westward-bound settlers, including encounters with the Native Americans they ultimately displaced.
