Additonal maps in text, plus small photos.A fascinating history of Ohio's Tuscarawas Valley as seen through the eyes and words of its early settlers.

The journals themselves are wonderfully detailed. Consider this excerpt written by James Smith in 1755, "I asked him if I had done anything that offended the Indians, which caused them to treat me so unmercifully (running the gauntlet). He said no, it was only an old custom the Indians had, and it was like how do you do."
