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

5 editions published between 1872 and 1898 in English and held by 43 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. Boones 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 eighteenth century America. All of Boones greatest achievements can be found in Abbotts words. Daniel Boone lived a modest life in his later years, settling down in St. Louis, where he managed land for the rest of his life

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 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

The discovery and settlement of Kentucke by John Filson( Book )

6 editions published between 1784 and 1785 in English and French and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

Daniel Boone, wilderness scout by Stewart Edward White( Book )

2 editions published in 1923 in Undetermined and English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Daniel Boone was an important historical figure before, during and after the American Revolutionary War. He was born on November 2, 1734. In his long life of 86 years, America went from a mostly unexplored backwoods wilderness that was a British colony to a settled and developed area. Probably the most important single accomplishment of Daniel Boone was his development of the Cumberland Gap as the only direct transit route through the Appalachian Mountains from Virginia to Kentucky. Daniel Boone explored the gap, made the gap wider and helped immigrants reach it. By 1800, 200,000 immigrants had crossed the Cumberland Gap to reach Kentucky. At a time when there were no roads and only Indian trails, Daniel Boone crossed back and forth so many times it is hard to keep count. Daniel Boone traveled as far west as Nebraska. He traveled by horse or by foot. He was a businessman and a politician. He served in the Virginia state legislature. He went broke many times. He was a man of peace who tried to avoid conflicts but nevertheless was involved in battles with the Indians and with the British during the French and Indian Wars and the American Revolutionary War."
