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:
The story of Daniel Boone is the story of America?its ideals, its promise, its romance, and its destiny. Bestselling, critically acclaimed author Robert Morgan reveals the complex character of a frontiersman whose heroic life was far stranger and more fascinating than the myths that surround him.

This rich, authoritative biography offers a wholly new perspective on a man who has been an American icon for more than two hundred years?a hero as important to American history as his more political contemporaries George Washington and Benjamin Franklin. Extensive endnotes, cultural and historical background material, and maps and illustrations underscore the scope of this distinguished and immensely entertaining work.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 and his participation in the French and Indian War and the Revolutionary War.
Annotation:
Poet Robert Morgan's rich biography of American pioneer legend Daniel Boone provides a vivid portrait of the great explorer, a man who helped open Kentucky and Missouri and was rare in his interaction and appreciation of the Native American tribes.
