The little family of John and Hannah Hilton King is the focus of the first part of this history. With their two small children, they emigrated from Lancashire, UK to America in 1834. Subsequent chapters follow the generations of their descendants as they spread across the nation.
This is a story of ordinary people, but it is truly extraordinary. In microcosm, it is the story of the nineteenth century settlement of the United States.
