When John Filson printed this book about the newly settled "country" of Kentucky, the United States Constitution had not been written and Kentucky was still part of Virginia. Filson's description of the Kentucky countryside and the accompanying map helped increase interest in settlement in the region. Also significant is Filson's account of "the adventures of Col. Daniel Boone." This biography of the famed woodsman was written by Filson based on conversations he had with Boone himself. Filson wrote the "adventures" in the first person, as though Boone was the one writing the book. This biography introduced Boone and his exploits to a wide audience of American and European readers and served to increase his fame and stature
