The new edition of In Search of the Turkey Foot Road is now available. The book proves that this legendary road was cut in 1779 as a military supply road to Fort Pitt to support a critical military campaign. The reason why it was cut through the environs of present-day Salisbury and Confluence is explained, and the various individuals who were involved in establishing the road are identified. Documentary evidence reveals that the antecedent to the eastern part of the road was an Indian and packer’s path. This fourth edition represents five years of intensive research, and is the final edition. As such, it closes a chapter in the lives of the authors, and opens a new chapter in the history of Fort Pitt. The book has 562 pages, and contains 70% more information than the previous edition. Click here for a brief overview. The 1,000+ figures and appendices are provided on a companion disk.
In Search of the Turkey Foot Road is a fascinating read through time in our own backyards. Flavored with bits of interest in anecdotes and footnotes, and illustrated with copious maps and photos, the book is a critical analysis of primary sources that will cause you to marvel at the magnitude of information processed by Dietle and McKenzie. It will teach you amazing things about the land, events and people around you, and perhaps something about yourself.

The elusive, and perhaps otherwise lost Turkey Foot Road now − with Dietle and McKenzie’s thorough research and documentation – can be known to all. The route has been identified in considerable detail using maps, property surveys, depression era high resolution aerial photography, crop marks, surviving landscape scars, local guides, and oral traditions. Using GPS coordinates from the book, a dedicated reader can explore much of the eighteenth century route between Cumberland, Maryland and Mount Pleasant, Pennsylvania using internet satellite imagery services, such as the Google mapping service.
