More > Quakers if you prefer, as were the majority of the first settlers of Gwyndd, fleeing from the religious intolerance of 17th Century England.

eBook (ePub): $10.95
Lewis Wetzel, a famous scout and ranger on the early American frontier just west of the Appalachian Mountains. He is a true American icon, but is he a hero or a villain? Almost all of the early... More > settlers considered him a hero because he vowed to "kill any Indian" who crossed his path and in doing so deterred the Indians from striking the settlements. Others of the time considered him a barbarous, psychotic murderer for killing innocent Indians, including women and children and thus incited the Indians to warfare against the growing population of whites. They claim Lewis Wetzel did everything in his power to prevent peace between the Indians and the settlers so he could keep on killing with impunity. The author of this book wrote the story of Lewis Wetzel in almost novel-like form which makes for very interesting reading and he attempts to keep the middle ground as to whether Wetzel was a hero or a villain. He has left it up to you, the reader, to decide.< Less

More > one of Kentucky’s major early industries—shipping goods and produce by flatboat to the port of New Orleans—and he does so almost at the birth of that industry, just two years after Gen.

He was a keen observer and comments on hunting and fishing along the way, local flora and fauna, weather and river conditions, settlements, and notable landmarks. 52 pp, illustrated< Less
