History is very interesting but relies heavily on letters which are recited verbatim.
A wretched piece of Manifest Destiny propaganda, a example of bald-faced unapologetic American exceptionalism. And just arrogant to argue that historians have neglected early Ohio--they haven't.
Although he did a lot of research, this is poorly written and disjointed, lacks continuity.
This was a pretty good book; however, audible is the way to go because the information is dry at times. Learning about an historical time that is usually glossed over in most American History survey courses was very satisfying. I especially enjoyed the correspondence between various figures because they gave such a flavor of the time and the beauty and skill of letter writing is a lost art in the modern world of emails.
Having enjoyed the author's previous works I was very excited about having another opportunity to enjoy one more fine work. Unfortunately, this was a boring read.
Incredible information presented in a way that reads like a story. I loved it. David McCullough is a master at this.
