Legendary as a pathfinder, master woodsman, intrepid adventurer, expert marksman, militia leader, wilderness scout, pioneer hero, Indian fighter, and prisoner of war -- Boone is perhaps Westward Expansion's most important figure. His love of exploration, skill in the outdoors, facility with native peoples, and dignity in the face of death made him a folk hero. Our finest frontiersman recounts years of adventure, hardship and danger -- losing two sons and a brother settling "the dark and bloody ground" of Kentucky, rescuing his kidnapped daughter, surviving a court-martial, and defeating a Shawnee siege through pure courage and cunning. He even teaches a few Indian phrases along the way.
