    Tourdescription About the audio tour

    Travel to a time before white Europeans "tamed" the wilderness of Western Pennsylvania, when Indians built mounds and walked trails. Be wary, though. It becomes the most dangerous place on Earth. We begin at the forts built at the Forks of the Ohio. We end at Logstown, the original Wild West town. Along the way, we'll be joined by howling wolves and dancing Indians. We'll visit an Indian burial mound that was carried away piece by piece until it is no more. Charles Dickens will reflect on his steamboat trip down the Ohio, and Grandmother will tell us why all the animals left Lenape land.

    Dickens is brought to you by Nick Black in London. Marti Donovan, who lives with many animals, brings us the wisdom of Grandmother.
