Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
A simplified biography, seven to eleven lines of text per page, tells briefly of the eighteenth-century hunter and wilderness dweller who later blazed the Wilderness Road that ran from Tennessee to Kentucky. Text covers Boone's early years, his frontier life with long times away from his wife and nine children, hints at what would be complex interactions with the Cherokee, and ends with the founding of Boonesborough. Chantland's scratchboard and muted-color illustrations are a real plus—well planned and varied, informative and sometimes even beautiful¾a perfect match to this introductory biography of one of America's pioneers. This is a good entry in the "On My Own Biography" series. 2001, Carolrhoda, $21.27 and $6.95. Ages 6 to 9. Reviewer: Susan Hepler
