About the Book

"The Young Trailers" is a novel by American author Joseph A. Altsheler, published in 1907. The book is the first in a series of eight novels known as the "Young Trailers'' series. The story takes place in the late 18th century in Kentucky, a frontier region where settlers are struggling to establish homes and farms in the wilderness. The novel follows the adventures of a group of young pioneers, including 16-year-old Henry Ware and his friends Paul Cotter, Tom Ross, and Shif'less Sol Hyde. The group of friends sets out on a journey through the wilderness, facing challenges such as hostile Native American tribes, wild animals, and harsh weather conditions. Along the way, they meet other settlers, including a group of French explorers and a family of refugees from a Native American attack. Throughout the novel, the characters learn about survival in the wilderness, the importance of friendship, and the dangers of prejudice and hatred. The book also explores themes such as courage, loyalty, and determination.
