Born a Slave, Died a Pioneer : Nathan Harrison and the Historical Archaeology of Legend Paperback / softback

Description

Few people in the history of the United States embody ideals of the American Dream more than Nathan Harrison.

His is a story with prominent themes of overcoming staggering obstacles, forging something-from-nothing, and evincing gritty perseverance.

In a lifetime of hard-won progress, Harrison survived the horrors of slavery in the Antebellum South, endured the mania of the California Gold Rush, and prospered in the rugged chaos of the Wild West.

This book uses spectacular recent discoveries from the Nathan Harrison cabin site to offer new insights and perspectives into this most American biography.
