Peter Coyote, narrator.
Tells the oft-overlooked tales of adventurers, warriors and conflicts that shaped the nation in the late 18th century. Traces the many battles fought by Native Americans against the French, British, Spanish and Americans. Dramatic re-enactments at historic sites, expert commentary, authentic period artifacts and journals are all used to recreate the incredible events of the era that some historians have dubbed "American's true first world war, when forces of Europe's great powers, the fledgling United States and Native Americans fought one another for ascendancy in the New World.
