The Adventures of Daniel Boone

by Uncle Philip

72 ratings, 16 reviews

If you're a Baby Boomer you might remember the the Daniel Boone television series, which aired from 1964 to 1970. In the show Daniel Boone was a "big man" in a "coonskin cap", and the "rippin'est, roarin'est, fightin'est man the frontier ever knew!" This was not the real Daniel Boone, who was neither big nor did not wear a coonskin cap. The real Daniel Boone (1734 - 1820) was an American explorer and pioneer whose life made him a man of legend in the early United States.

Boone is most well know for his original exploration of what is now Kentucky, which lay outside of the Thirteen Colonies. Despite resistance from the native Americans, Boone forged the Wilderness Road through the Cumberland Gap in the Appalachian Mountains. He founded the village of Boonesborough, Kentucky, one of the first settlements west of the Appalachians to speak English. By the end of the 1700s, over 200,000 white folk migrated to the Kentucky using the route blazed by Daniel Boone.

This book gives a general assessment of Boone's life, although it is a bit simplistic, as in saying his primary motivation for everything was to escape the encroaching settlement of Europeans, wherever he lived. In fact there were many economic factors that motivated him as well, but that was probably not how biographies were written when this book was published. It is a good book for a brief look into the myth that Boone became.

A very enjoyable book with excerpts from Mr Boone himself. A good historical rendition for children and the faint if heart who would not enjoy the gruesome details of the wars fought against the Indians
