Author Steve E. Troutman explores the Tulpehocken Path, focusing on the lesser-known sections in Northumberland and Schuylkill Counties, Pennsylvania. He presents a history of the trail, from its earliest times, focusing on the activities of Conrad Weiser, Indian Agent for the Penns and others of note. Using contemporary and vintage maps, he suggests the possible variations of the trail and subsequently explores them himself, providing numerous pictures of key present-day locations along the Path. He then follows with accounts of the numerous historic travelers on the trails, including passages from many journals from the colonial era. Lastly, Steve connects present-day locations and people to the Native Americans who lived in the Mahantongo Valley, including information about the Seven Sacred Circles near Rebuck, PA.
