'Alan Eckert's book gives a vivid account of the opening of the Western frontier. It was a tumultuous time when the whites and Indian peoples came into conflict over the possession of the land. Battles were fought and lost and the whites won by number and more skillful weapons. Through trickery and deceit the lands were fast taken from the Indians. The life style of the Indians was often to be preferred by a limited number of whites as the Indians lived in cooperative friendship with the earth However it was, our nation grew and the Indians were shunted onto reservations, and so it continues to this day.Men, white and Indian, were often noble people whose values infused and inspired the people of their day. Eckert's books are written in a style that gives the ordinary person a vibrant picture of the people who made this nation.' - Janesview
