PIONEER HEROES by J. Walker McSpadden


Email this review


For a slightly older age group then his Indian Heroes, here is another collection of brief but well set biographies stressing the individual achievements contributing toward the opening up of America. Among the men included in the ten sketches are La Salle, Fremont, Daniel Boone and Junipero Serra- so the book as a whole gives a sense of the span of time it took to cover the millions of square miles. Each sketch too, is characterized by a fresh, unpatterned and frank approach that makes an honest evaluation of the man and his relative importance at the time.
