LAND OF PROMISE

A comprehensive history of the original Northwest Territory-that area of the United States which is now Ohio, Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin and Minnesota. Covering a considerable era in time, a brief resume of ancient history, the exploration, exploitation and settlement of this large territory, the book is necessarily sketchy in places and often seems to lack unity, but on the whole succeeds in giving an over-all picture of the development of this area. The author has a real knack for story telling and the most vivid parts of the book are the stories of the men and woman who opened and settled this region. There should be considerable regional interest in this book, but mainly it's recommended for libraries, reference reading.
