|Bestselling author Morgan reveals the complex character of Daniel Boone--a frontiersman whose heroic life was far stranger and more fascinating then the myths that surround him. Extensive endnotes, cultural and historical background material, and maps add to this authoritative work.|
From the Publisher:
A masterful portrait of a mythic American hero offers a sweeping study of Daniel Boone in terms of his larger-than-life role in the early history of America, detailing his trailblazing journeys into the heart of the American wilderness, his participation in the French and Indian War and the Revolutionary War, his relationship with the Indians, and more. Reprint.
