Abstract:

Traces the life and exploration of Daniel Boone, and discusses his role in the westward movement of the American people. The embodiment of the American hero, Daniel Boone personifies the great adventure of his age, the westward movement of the American people. The prototype for the frontiersman, he was a multifaceted individual who shaped and was driven by the complex forces of this dynamic period in history. Daniel Boone: An American Life brings together over thirty years of research in this extraordinary biography. Based on primary sources, the book depicts Boone through the eyes of those who knew him and within the historical contexts of his eighty six years. Boone's story offers new insights into the turbulent birth of the nation and demonstrates why the frontier forms such a significant part of the American experience.
