The Life and Legend of An American PioneerBook - 1992
Boone scouted the trans-Appalachian West for settlement, surveyed and helped build the Wilderness Road, and led the settlers' struggle against the Shawnee defenders of Kentucky. Drawing from popular narrative, public record, documentation from Boone's own hand, and recollection gathered by 19th-century antiquarians, the author employs the methods of the new social history to produce a portrait that defines Daniel Boone and the times he helped shape. Includes 16 pages of black and white illustrations. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
