Why read it?
1 author picked The Pioneers as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?
One of the best ways to learn about leadership is to study history. A good starting point is anything written by Pulitzer-Prize-winning historian David McCullough. In this book he recounts an important period of American history—the settling of the Northwest Territory. The pioneers exhibited incredible leadership and bravery in the face of primitive and dangerous living conditions. One takeaway from the book is that you will learn about the importance of this territory in the fight to eliminate slavery.
