Publishers Weekly #1 Best Seller for 1904.

It is important to note that the author is not the famed English politician and author, but an unrelated American writer.

This book has been named "The Crossing" because I have tried to express in it the beginnings of that great movement across the mountains which swept resistless over the Continent until at last it saw the Pacific itself. The Crossing was the first instinctive reaching out of an infant nation which was one day to become a giant. No annals in the world's history are more wonderful than the story of the conquest of Kentucky and Tennessee by the pioneers...Winston Churchill
