Daniel Boone is regarded as the first real American folk hero. Without his cunning bravery, settlement west of the Appalachians may not have been made possible for years. Boone's Wilderness Road, which is still used today, helped bridge the Cumberland Gap, granting access to the state of Kentucky from Pennsylvania. Thanks to the writing of John S.C. Abbot, the life and genius of Boone can truly be appreciated through Daniel Boone: The Pioneer of Kentucky. Find out just how Boone crafted his Wilderness Trail, what he did to make it happen, and how he overcame the struggles of life in late eight

Life and times of Colonel Daniel Boone, comprising history of the early settlement of Kentucky by Cecil B Hartley( Book )
3 editions published in 1860 in English and held by 20 libraries worldwide
This detailed biography of Boone places great emphasis on the woodsman's role in the early settlement of Kentucky. Several chapters describe Boone's often solo exploration of the land, his work cutting a trail and leading the first groups of settlers into the state, and his leadership at Boonesborough, the first settlement in Kentucky. The book also chronicles Boone's later life, when he was stripped of the lands he surveyed and dwelt in comfortable obscurity in Missouri. While Hartley sometimes embroiders Boone's life to make history sound more romantic and exciting, this book is accompanied by numerous illustrations such as Daniel Boone's initiation as a member of a Shawnee community. This volume also includes a copy of John Filson's first biography of Boone

Daniel Boone by Reuben Gold Thwaites( Book )
2 editions published in 1902 in Undetermined and English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
This biography of the great woodsman and pioneer makes use of a large cache of documents and oral interviews conducted by Lyman Copeland Draper. Draper was a writer and historian who spent decades collecting historical documents and conducting extensive oral interviews with the family, friends and associates of Daniel Boone and several other prominent early American settlers and pioneers. Draper's hoard of documentary material passed to the State Historical Society of Wisconsin. Reuben Gold Thwaites, a later director of the society, used this large collection of primary sources to create one of the first comprehensive and scholarly biographies of Boone. The text is accompanied by numerous illustrations, and this book is famous for presenting a rounded, human portrait of Boone as remembered by his friends and descendants. All future biographies of Boone draw heavily on this volume and the Draper collection
