Abstract

JOURNAL OF THE EARLY REPUBLIC (Summer 2005) contrast to Kentucky, the isolated French villagers of Illinois routinely enjoyed amicable relations with their Native American neighbors. Eslinger's lengthy introduction provides a solid overview of the history of the Ohio Valley in the eighteenth century. In it Eslinger includes an analysis of other travelers' accounts not included in this volume to examine the settlers' motivations to migrate, the organization of traveling groups, and their interactions with Native Americans. She details the development and explains the relative advantages of the two principal routes to Kentucky. This thoughtful collection conveniently brings together a representative sample of these relatively unavailable travelers' accounts. It is recommended for historians of the trans-Appalachian West, migration historians, and those interested in the westward movement. L. S COT T PH I LY A W, Associate Professor of History at Western Carolina University, is author of Virginia's Western Visions: Political and Cultural Expansion on an Early American Frontier (2004). Liberation Historiography: African American Writers and the Challenge of History, 1794­1861. By John Ernest. (Chapel Hill: University of North Carolina Press, 2004. Pp. xiv, 426.
