Ill-Fated Frontier is a pioneer adventure with a compelling narrative of the frictions that emerged among entrepreneurial pioneers on a planned expedition, sixty enslaved people, Native Americans fighting to preserve their land, and Spanish colonials with their own agenda. It is a turbulent and visceral portrait of the wild American frontier in 1789 that begins with an optimistic plan and ends with the body of one of the expedition’s leaders returning to New Jersey pickled in a barrel of rum. What happened in between lies at the center of this fascinating account.
