Conquest of the Old Northwest by James Baldwin
This book is the second part of Baldwin's history of the discovery and settlement of the Ohio Valley. It begins with an overview of the rival claims between the French and English. Although most of the earliest settlers were French, by the end of the 18th century England became predominant. Introduces lesser known French and English heroes of the region, such as Juchereau, Vincennes, Joncaire, Carver, and Clark, as well as the predominant Indian chiefs of the era.
