The Muscle Shoals: First Frontier of these United States is an in-depth study of a unique place in the wilds of American history. A tumbling stretch of rough water on the Tennessee River first populated by the Cherokee and Chickasaw people, the Muscle Shoals would become a magnet for settlement and trade—as well as the object of schemes and dreams, speculation, plans, and politics.
