He has a couple others from the same period but if your into the period this just might be one of the best. He is 6 time Pulitzer Winner so he is no strat up.

John, I've read two of his books and always wondered whether or not he writes historical fiction or history. His books, that I've read, are so dense with facts that if it's fiction it's darn close to being history. Wilderness Empire is the one I remember the most and I read that over 20 years ago. I do need to find some more of his books and read them.

PS-I've got a laptop now so no more long silences from me.

I found this link to Eckert's books. The man has been prolific!
