Launched into American myth and folklore within his own lifetime, Daniel Boone led a life that would eventually be seen as representing the spirit of Manifest Destiny. This two-part tale begins with a brief profile by Boone, himself, covering his deeds in Kentucky from 1769-1784. The second part chronicles his life cradle to grave, including the accounts of his capture and adoption by the Shawnee and his service as a militiaman during the Revolutionary War. 126 pages, softcover.

Before Davy Crocket and Kit Carson came along to share the wild frontier legend, there lived a pioneer and trailblazer named Daniel Boone--and extraordinary man, who, with his brother, Squire, explored the "howling wilderness" and helped settle the State of Kentucky. When this true life account was first published in the early 1800s, it served to set the record straight once and for all on the mythic Daniel Boone, and established him as a new American hero. The first part of the book is told in Boone's own words and spans twenty-five years of his life, from 1769, through the Revolutionary War, and up to 1784. The second section was written by Frances Lister Hawks as a biography, and traces Boone's life from childhood up to his death in 1818. The book paints a vivid portrait of Boone, and allows us to experience his times- life with Shawanese, Cherokees, Wyandots, Tawas and other Indians, as well as the trials of everyday pioneer life in the mountains, the woods, and along the rivers-and takes the reader to the first white settlement in Kentucky, named Boonesborough in his honor.

Full of adventure that will keep young children reading, Who Was Daniel Boone tells the story of the frontiersman's life, from his youth spent hunting to his frequent moves and his opening up the Kentucky landscape for European-American settlers. With quotes woven seamlessly into the narrative and lots of humorous pen-and-ink illustrations, this is a remarkably detailed look at a fascinating American man. 105 pages, softcover. Grade 3.
