The Wilderness Road. A description of the Routes of Travel by which the Pioneer and Early Settlers first came to Kentucky
By: Thomas Speed, Pub. 1886, reprinted 2023, 80 pages, soft cover, ISBN #978-1-63914-146-3. This book was written for the Filson Club back in 1885 as a description of the Routes of Travel by which the Pioneer and Early Settlers first came to Kentucky. These early settlers came from Virginia, the Carolinas, Maryland and Pennsylvania. The greater portion of this travel was over the Wilderness Road, though many persons made their way down the Ohio River. The author has included a map showing these routes from various established cities or forts such as Richmond, VA and Philadelphia, PA. across the mountains to Boonesboro or Crab Orchard, KY. Mooney has also included descriptions of the routes containing the mileage from spot to spot along the way.
