Daniel Boone by Reuben Gold Thwaites( Book )

40 editions published between 1902 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 923 WorldCat member 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 Draper was a writer and historian who spent decades collecting historical documents and conducting extensive oral interviews with the family, friends and associates of Daniel Boone and several other prominent early American settlers and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

On the storied Ohio an historical pilgrimage of a thousand miles in a skiff, from Redstone to Cairo by Reuben Gold Thwaites( Book )

20 editions published between 1903 and 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On the Storied Ohio tells the story of the six-week, 1100-mile journey down the Ohio River made by the longtime Secretary and Director of the State Historical Society of Wisconsin and Managing Editor of the Wisconsin State Journal, Rueben Gold Thwaites, his family and a Doctor. This new and revised edition of Afloat on the Ohio recounts the 1894 adventure from Redstone, PA to Cairo, IL when Thwaits chose to make the pilgrimage by skiff rather than onboard the faster steamers. It is a logbook of their travels and the curious people they met. Yet it is also a rich retelling of river legend, looking into the past to understand the great waterway while imagining the experiences of the early explorers, pioneers, and settlers who opened up the West through river travel from the East.
