Summary
Pulitzer Prize-winning historian David McCullough tells the story of how the Northwest Territory was settled by dauntless pioneers, including Massachusetts minister Manasseh Cutler; Revolutionary War veteran General Rufus Putnam; Cutler's son Ephraim; and two other men, one a carpenter turned architect, and the other a physician who became a prominent figure in American science. Drawn from a rare collection of diaries and letters by the key figures, The Pioneers depicts people who overcame incredible hardships to build a community based on ideals that would come to define America
