Format: Paperback
I am William Dollarhide, author of this book, which is out-of-print. The publisher (ProQuest) acquired publication rights when it bought out Heritage Quest, and has no interest in genealogy, other than the HeritageQuestOnline databases. I have a few copies of the book, some of which were to be presentation copies to families members but never mailed. Copies have inscriptions and signatures on title page, but I can modify the words to apply to a buyer. These few personal copies may be the last unused copes available anywhere. There is a possibility that I will take back the publication rights for the book, and there has been a continued interest in this book. The reviews do not mention that all of the migration routes described and mapped are compared with the modern route (U.S. Hwy, Interstate, etc.)today. So, use a modern Rand-McNally atlas to see the old migration routes and the counties through which each road passes. In this sense, the maps reveal a narrowing down of the number of counties where an ancestor may have stopped enroute to a new home, had babies, farmed for a few months, and incidentally, dropped some records at the local courthouse. Go for it!

They went where?!
One of the most difficult things for the beginning genealogist or historian to understand is how, and why, various populations moved across the early American landscape. This book packs easily understood information on the ways that early America was settled into a format that you can carry to the library without breaking your back. There's an amazing amount of information here: trails, roads, turnpikes, canals, rivers, flatboats, land availability, group migrations, etc. The book includes many helpful maps, plus notes and suggestions for further reading. Dollarhide writes very clearly, making what could be dry material in other hands blessedly understandable and intriguing.
This book is a great value for its reasonable cost.

I found this short work very practical and useful in trying to recreate the immigrant ancestors' experience. It answers many of my questions about travel and transportation in our early American history. Well worth the price of this research aid.

This book is a very well-written, thorough look at the first "roads" in the USA, back before it was the USA. It has chronological information on how our roads came into being, complete with maps. It also has a lot of historical information on lots of different things, from companies to politics!! It is well worth the money and well worth the read!Map guide to American migration routes, 1735-1815

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I felt the description of this book was misleading. I expected larger and better maps than those included, given the description of the book and it's title as a "Map guide". The same maps and most the information contained here is available for free on the Internet, do a Google search and save money. Good free information on each migration route available here: [...]

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was expecting considerably more detail in a publication with this cost . Basically this turned out to be a 41 page ( counting a 2 page index ) abbreviated sketch containing about 12 or 13 general maps of approximate routes pitched on about a 6th grade
level . I readily admit that I now know more than I did , as a result of reading this publication , however the same could be said
of a historical article in the local newspaper at a fraction of the cost. Read time about 30 minutes for a SLOW , every word reader like me .
