PONDER THE PATH TABLE OF CONTENTS

Ponder The Path, our high action nonfiction American History book (1808-1830), features William Sublette and the famous Mountain Men as it cyclones across 28 states. Relive Early America with 173 Real People, 29 Tribes and 13 Business Firms or Organizations in Ponder's 35 chapters.

By combining a Chronology with the Table of Contents, we turned a formality into a precious tool that allows the reader to understand the exact timelines of every chapter. These timelines appear at the top of every page so the reader, unlike the Mountain Men, never gets lost.
