From inside flap, "They were almost fantastically brave. No coward could have lived the life required of them." This is what the author says of the frontier preachers who helped bring civilization to the American frontier. Courageous, dedicated, these men braved the dangers of untracked wilderness, warring Indians, hunger, cold, robbers and outlaws, with no thought but for their mission. Henry Muhlenberg, Rabbi Isaac Mayer, Henry Whipple, Pere Marquette, Samuel Mills, John Stewart, William Taylor, Junipero Serra-all were alike n their love of adventure and desire to serve mankind. Wherever they went they brought order and justice where none had been before. Here are exciting and little-known stories of some of the men who helped to lay the foundations of a democratic nation."
