In reality, therefore, "the territory northwest of the river Ohio" has no veritable history ante-dating the period of its first discovery by civilized man. Portions of the country had been heard of, it is true, but only through vague reports of savages.
Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive.
