“Beyond the stunning scenery lies important history of early American. A young George Washington traversed the expanse, cutting his teeth as a military leader.
“Violence between Native Americans and colonists in the territory left its bloody mark, from the Penn’s Creek Massacre to the Great Cave Massacre.
“After the American Revolution, early-settler families forged roots, built communities and developed the region into a patchwork of frontier towns.
“Through a series of richly compelling narratives, author Kathy Myers reveals the early history of the Pennsylvania Wilds.”
