Gets bogged down with too much geneaology initially and then the relative simplicity of the man's life doesn't make for scintillating reading. Certainly a man unlike any I've read about, living a life original. Anyone with an interest in the early diaspora of the white man into the original northwest of the Ohio valley will find this title fascinating. Part vagabond, preacher, arborist and entrepreneur, this book lifts the veil on an American legend.
