It is a story as resonant today as ever." The book also received rave reviews in Publisher’s Weekly, which says “Popular historian McCullough uses his well-crafted writing style and thorough research to highlight the evolution of the ‘Ohio territory’... The swiftly moving narrative also shines light on the territory’s consistent antislavery position beginning with the 1787 Northwest Territory Ordinance and leading to the first black vote in 1802…a fascinating and well-written look at the Cutler families and the Americanizing of Ohio” and the Missourian which says "'The Pioneers' is an engaging, educational read about a key, but often overlooked, time in America’s history." Simon & Schuster published the book on May 7, 2019.
