Daniel Boone - The Opening of the Wilderness
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.
About the Landmark series:
For over half a century, Landmark books have been an important part of home libraries. Jam-packed with exciting stories and adventures, the Landmark series is known as the first historical series for kids. Teaching parents continue to trust the Landmark name to engage their children with accurate information on well-known people and interesting periods in American history. The variety of subjects; action-filled, story-like narratives; large and clear print; and reasonable prices make the Landmark series an excellent and enjoyable way to learn more about history.
Extremely popular in the 1950s and 1960s, while these are all secular titles the fact that they were written as many as fifty years ago ensures their wholesomeness, as much as any book pertaining to the lives of mortal men can be wholesome.
"The author…makes of him a real man rather than a myth…The style combines good literary quality with the vigor and forcefulness the subject deserves."—Chicago Children's Book Center
"Gives a vivid picture of the dangers of the frontier."—Library Journal
"Especially recommended."—Wilson Library Guide
