Description

Many nights I spent awake with owls, away from people and enduring hot summers and cold winters as I helped settle the wilderness. Daniel Boone was driven by a strong sense of purpose to blaze the Wilderness Road through the Cumberland Gap. His efforts led thousands to settle in Boonesborough, Kentucky, and it became one of the first English-speaking communities west of the Appalachians. The story of the legendary frontiersman's life is divided into two parts. The first part is a brief profile of Boone, covering his adventures in the Kentucky wilderness from 1769 to 1784, as told by Boone himself. The second part chronicles Boone's entire life, from his childhood to his death, including thrilling accounts of his capture and adoption by Shawnee Indians and his service as a militiaman during the Revolutionary War.
