    History Comes Alive

    This beautifully illustrated book presents the story of the Forbes campaign, one of the most dramatic and significant chapters of the French and Indian war. Part travel guide and part historical narrative, this book follows the route of young George Washington and British General John Forbes as they struggle through the Pennsylvannia wilderness. In addition to telling us about historical events, this book provides tools to help contemporary travelers discover historic sites, the great outdoors and family attractions. I would recommend it to anyone interested in history and travel adventure.
