The Story of America's Greatest Frontiersman

Travel with Daniel Boone through the wilderness. The colonists have won the American Revolution, but they now face unknown dangers west of the Appalachian Mountains. Who will lead the Western expansion?

Meet one of America's first frontier heroes, Daniel Boone, as he guides the first settlers through the Cumberland Gap and into the vast but perilous lands beyond.

Kentucky native John Mason Brown introduces us to this skilled and clever woodsman who felt crowded as more townships developed. Always seeking new territory, Boone pushed on from Kentucky, drawn by the beauties of nature, until he reached the Rocky Mountains.

Readers will enjoy the company of this brave man who fought wild animals, was captured by Indians, and ultimately made an honorable peace with them.

Daniel Boone November 1, 2010
Reviewer: Misty Marr from Buckeye, AZ United States  
I really enjoyed Daniel Boone - The Opening of the Wilderness.  It was eye-opening to see just how much the real story differed from the legend - even little things like the fact that he actually didn't wear a coonskin cap.  Daniel Boone's feats were truly amazing, and he did much for America.  Yet sadly, America did not treat him so well....  I found it interesting that some of the names of people in the Daniel Boone TV series were actually historical names of people groups or places that were in the story.  I do wish that the book would have included a bit more about his family.  You are given tiny bits of information here and there, but only the names of a few and the fact that there were 7 living at one point, and he had twin boys.  Even so, it was an excellent book, and well worth the cost.
