  • Rooseveltby Sean J. Savage

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 40.00

  • The Shawneeby Jerry E. Clark

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 19.95

    Many Indian tribes claimed Kentucky as hunting territory in the eighteenth century, though for the most part their villages were built elsewhere.

When Daniel Boone explored Kentucky in 1769,... more...
