Conquest of the Old southwest



Originally published 1920, Century Co., 435 pages


- Bonus Book -

The Virginia Frontier 1754-1763


“The romantic and thrilling story of the southward and westward
migration of successive waves of transplanted European peoples
throughout the entire course of the eighteenth century is the
history of the growth and evolution of American democracy. Upon
the American continent was wrought out, through almost superhuman daring, 
incredible hardship, and surpassing endurance, the formation of a new society.
The European rudely confronte with the pitiless conditions of the wilderness
soon discovered that his maintenance, indeed his existence, was conditioned
upon his individual efficiency and his resourcefulness in adapting himself
to his environment. The very history of the human race, from the
age of primitive man to the modern era of enlightened
civilization, is traversed in the Old Southwest throughout the
course of half a century.”
