Wagons Away! a social studies primer on the early
1790's settlement of the Western Reserve (Ohio). This wonderful,
easy-to-read story is told through the experience of the real Benjamin
Stone who - in 1791 - was age 9 and, with his family, made the rugged trip
from Rutland, Massachusetts, to the Ohio Territory. Benjamin's family
found Marietta and Belpre, Ohio freshly constructed, there on the banks of
the Ohio River.
