This book was first published in 1973 as part of its “Great American Trails” series. It was instantly recognized for its insight into the birth of the American South, from the early 1700s until the Civil War. Over the years the road led countless Scotch-Irish, Germanic, and English settlers southward from Philadelphia to settle the Appalachian uplands from Pennsylvania to Georgia.
