Item description for The Conquerors (Winning of America Series) by Allan W. Eckert...

The Conquerors, the third volume in Allan Eckert's acclaimed series, The Winning of America, continues the narrative of The Frontiersmen and Wilderness Empire: the violent and monumental story of the wresting of the North American continent from the Indians. But the locale has moved westward---to the northern frontiers of Pennsylvania, to Michigan and the Green Bay area, especially the crucial outposts of Fort Pitt and Fort Detroit, Sandusky and Mackinac.

Wilderness Empire concluded with the English victory in the French and Indian War, a conquest which gave them possession of an immense North American empire. Now English soldiers and traders began the trek across the wilderness to man the former French outposts, to secure the land for the Crown and to exploit its riches. But these men were to find that the conquest of the Northwest did not end with the defeat of the French. The Indians had only resentment for the English, whom they regarded not as conquerors, but as unwelcome interlopers on their own ancestral lands. At last, provoked beyond endurance by restrictive policies, and encouraged by agents of the French, the most powerful tribes of the region united behind the charismatic Pontiac, war chief of the Ottawa, in a concerted effort to drive the English forever form the Northwest.

The Conquerors is the story of Pontiac's uprising and the men involved in it: the conquering English, both soldiers and intrepid civilians, who undertook the dangers of the Indian trade for profit and the adventure of opening a new land; and, most importantly, the Indians, who refused to accept the yoke of the conquered and were driven to violence to protect their homes and their way of life from the encroachment of an alien civilization.

Combining the accuracy of a chronicle and the spellbinding pace of a story well told, Allan Eckert evokes the high drama of the conquest of the Northwest and the breathtaking grandeur of the land itself.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Conquerors (Winning of America Series)?

Hooked on Eckert  Oct 2, 2007
I'm hooked on these Allan Eckert books. The Conquerors has a multitude of characters to follow in this work. All of their true experiences are nail biting. I find myself following their paths by searching all of the maps that are included in the book. I plan on reading all 6 of his 600 plus page novels.
Great book, great series  Jul 28, 2007
This is one of the better books in the Eckert series. I'd strongly recommend it for any history fan, and would definately encourage non-history fans to read this or any of Eckert's other books (Dark and Bloody River, Frontiersmen, Tecumseh).
Winning of America Series  May 7, 2007
This series is outstanding. These books are filled with actual historical dates, events, letters and people but with amazing readilbiity. I am not a huge history buff but these books pull you into the characters and their lives. I learned more fun history about this time through these books than while in school.
The Conquerers...Allan Eckert Winning of America Series.  Jul 14, 2006
As always, I was more than satisfied with the delivery, the condition of the book and the timeliness. You are to be congratulated for your fine efforts.
Keep up the good works.....
Great Book!  Jan 15, 2006
Allan Eckert has a way of writing historical books that will make even someone that is not a history buff love history. I try and try to read the historical reference books but I find them to be very uneventful and boring. Allan Eckert can turn that into a thrilling novel that will keep you on the edge of your seat without losing its historical accuracy. All the books in this series are great. The Conquerors is very, very interesting.
