Sobre este título:
There are also 30 maps in the book, most of them dating from the 18th century. When the valley was being surveyed in 1797, the vestiges of six Indian towns were noted on these maps, and they are displayed on the left-hand page of the book. Opposite to them, on the right-hand page, are the modern topographic maps of the same locations, thus enabling the reader to see precisely where the old Indian town was located on the modern map. Other maps are included for the purpose of helping to establish the locations of some towns that were not noted on the 1797 survey, or for some other particular purpose.
By means of these journals and maps, the locations of White Eyes Town and Muskingum are now known. Also the location of Bouquet's 16th Encampment survey point is established. Many other new facts are brought out about the Tuscarawas Valley in Indian Days.
Reseña del editor: The book is hardbound with a laminated dustjacket, 424 pages, 8x11, Smyth sewn, and printed on 60#, natural, acid-free paper. It has an extensive bibliography, is indexed and has cataloging in publication data. For a book of this size and quality the price is remarkably low. Praise from readers: One of the most comprehensive and splendidly written books on the early history of Tuscarawas County. should be in the home of every person interested in Tuscarawas County history.
