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, and 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.
