For historians or family researchers interested in the
social history of the frontier and settlement period
of the old South and old Southwest (as in Kentucky, Indiana)
this book is a valuable asset.

There are vivid descriptions and intense research;the
author has stated, "The Dixie Frontier was one of the most
romantic and heroic of the entire continent." The book
covers daily life, customs,attitudes, practices - all
phases of pioneer living of squatters, planters, slaves,
the women,medicine,speech,religion, etc. It's a book
to keep on the shelf for frequent reference.

Liked how it dealt separately with digger entry aspects of frontier life.

This book should be required reading for those interested in the pioneers of our nation! It answers thoughts that never quite had questions as well as giving insights into a whole type of people. I read it a long time ago and kept referring back to the borrowed copy and finally got my own.

This book was first published in 1949. Well, some things have changed, and political correctness has settled in. However, this book is terrific. It tells what life was like west of the Appalachians from the Revolution until the Civil War, from the written sources of that time. There are not as many footnotes as we would use now, but there are a lot, and the bibliography in the back is thorough enough for anybody. A lot of this information I have known all my life, or gathered as I went, but there were still things to be gleaned. Who knew bear claws roasted in the ashes were a great treat? There are lots of chapters by topic but not too long, so one can read one or a bunch. As I read, I was constantly reminded that two hundred years was not that long ago, and there are still signs we live on the edge of settlement. Suitable for all ages above eight.
