Gliding to a Better Place: Profiles from Ohio's Territorial Era
Gary S. Williams, Owen Williams (Illustrator)

Who came Gliding to a Better Place?

As the first state to be settled by U. S. citizens, Ohio is the start of our nation's westward movement. Gathered here are the stories of some of the fascinating characters that came. They collectively tell the story of Ohio's Territorial Era. Here, you will read about:
  • The Father of our Country's role in westward expansion
  • The female frontier scout who was as tough as any man
  • The old man who went to the sea again by being the first to sail down the Ohio River
  • Three Ohio Natives who tried to forge tribal unity in the face of white encroachment
  • The U. S. General who tried to undermine Anthony Wayne while being paid by the Spanish government as Agent 13
It's all here: the true stories behind the legends, tales of the courageous and the curmudgeonly, the sagas of the saints and schemers and the soldiers and settlers who came gliding to a better place and carved a new state out of the wilderness.
