Fascinating view of the legend. Daniel Boone was revealed in facts and honesty taking away the image that hollywood and those not steeped in facts use to show the false information found in most history books. Boone had an understanding that he was not the first and seems to have respected us "First People" unlike hollywood and other liberal thinking whites. Overall the book was a fast read and full of information and I may do something I rarelyu do: Read it again! I highly recommend this tome to any interested in facts behind the legends.
