Daniel Boone, pioneer of Kentucky by John S. C Abbott( Book )

5 editions published between 1872 and 1898 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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( )

4 editions published between 1860 and 2006 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member 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's Own Story & The Adventures of Daniel Boone by Daniel Boone( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Many dark and sleepless nights have I been a companion for owls, separated from the cheerful society of men, scorched by the summer's sun and pinched by the winter's cold-an instrument ordained to settle the wilderness." Motivated by a powerful sense of purpose, Daniel Boone blazed the Wilderness Road through the Cumberland Gap. Thousands followed, settling in Boonesborough, Kentucky, to form one of the first English-speaking communities west of the Appalachians. This two-part tale of the legendary frontiersman's life begins with a brief profile by Boone himself, covering his exploits in the Kentucky wilderness from 1769 to 1784. The second part chronicles Boone's life from cradle to grave, with exciting accounts of his capture and adoption by Shawnee Indians and his service as a militiaman during the Revolutionary War
