Description - Daniel Boone: His Own Story by Daniel Boone

Daniel Boone: His Own Story by Colonel Daniel Boone & The Adventures of Daniel Boone, The Kentucky Rifleman by Francis Lister Hawks. Before Davy Crockett and Kit Carson came along to share the wild frontier legend, there lived a pioneer and trailblazer named Daniel Boone - an 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 Francis Lister Hawks as a biography, and traces Boone's life from childhood on 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.
