KIRKUS REVIEW

A comprehensive, painstaking and detailed, if not inspired, account of the life of Daniel Boone. This biography of a great frontiersman who expanded the boundaries of the known colonies, who went into Kaintuck', who was an important Indian scout, etc., has enough interesting material to hold the attention of students of U. S. history. Cambric aprons, courtships, family, living, love, death, attacks, escapes, dress and countless details make this a valuable source of supplementary information on this period, this area, and this character.
