  1. The advertising and promotion of this book by , and in the subtitle on the book jacket, suggestes that it is a history of the settlement of the territories created by the Northwest Ordinance of 1787 It is anything but While the first 31 pages do contain a most welcome presentation of the creation of the Ordinance, the balance of the volume is devoted primarily to the personal histories of the first settlers of the North bank of the Ohio River in the vicinity of Cincinatti Of the larger Northwest [...]


  2. David McCullough is a wonderful writer usually This book is half notes and acknowledgements The book is well written as usual, but the content is lacking The settlers were portrayed as hero s, and little attention is given to the Native Americans who were displaced by Americans who treated them shamefully Mr McCullough is capable of much better.


  3. Big fan of McCullough but found this book to be a let down Instead of being called The Pioneers, it should be called a A History of Marietta, Ohio Sound boring It is Beyond that, it presents a very limited overview of the history of the NW Territory and instead focuses on two generations of the Cutler family, which even after finishing the book I don t really care about Maybe we if you have Ohio roots, you would be enthused Seems to me that McCullough simply got his hands on original source mate [...]


  4. I am a fan of David McCullough s books and this one captivated me at once, as I had expected Settling down with this beautiful book including photos, I read it straight through, marveling at those courageous families who crossed the mountains into Ohio and settled the town of Marietta out of a wilderness The descriptions of forests, the Ohio River, Indians, wild animals and the brave men and women who persevered from 1787 to 1863 making the new state of Ohio into a free state, with schools and c [...]


  5. I love history Devour it I ve read just about every word David McCullough has written But this Meh His first, IMHO, flop Was skimming paragraphs by page four and skimming pages by the tedium of Rush and Peale by the pages twenties It would seem that McCullough found Manasseh Cutler s diary and went to town with it, adding context but otherwise keeping in just about every quotidian detail there was Other reviewers here, and in print including the NYT and Wash Post have singled out McCullough s ha [...]


  6. There is a lot to appreciate in this history of American expansion into the Northwest Territories Firstly, possibly even amazing than the expansion into the lands acquired through the Louisiana Purchase, the virgin lands, as described by the original pioneers of this region are best appreciated if one imagines what might transpire if, or when, we travel to some distant planet.What sets this history apart from most others, though, is the writer s writing style It is a bit meandering than the typi [...]


  7. Whilst this is a story which focuses on five prime actors, the breath of what David McCullough describes is staggering To put some perspective on the narrative, the American War of Independence, also known as the American Revolutionary War, which spanned the period from 19 April 1775, until the Treaty of Paris concluded the war on 3 September 1783, with the defeat of Britain and loss of its thirteen eastern seaboard colonies, together with what was known as the Northwest Territory, which is to s [...]
