Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Elizabeth Sulock
This engaging biography about America's "Great Pioneer" is a strong choice for young readers. Kramer's writing chronologically details Boone's life and includes brief dialogue and short stories. The well-composed explanations relate the struggles of the time for a young contemporary audience, such as explaining the necessity of salt in frontier life. The pages are full of illustrations that are specific to the text, helping reluctant readers move forward, and a few basic maps that detail Boone's journeys are incorporated as well. Readers will also discover some illustrated passages presenting a basic explanation on subjects young readers are less likely to be familiar with such as the Shawnee and Boone's eighteenth-century attire. The text contains two comparing/contrasting time lines, one of Boone's life and the other of world events. These will allow readers to understand where his life as an early pioneer fits into both American and world history. Part of the "Who Was. . .?" series.

    Interesting facts about Daniel Boone

    This book was an interesting book about one of our first pioneers. He was interested in finding new trails into the wild unexplored frontier of our coountry. It tells about Daniel Boone's adventures as a hunter and woodsman. The book begins with his birth, his life growing up, what he did as an adult, and his death at age 86. It should appeal especially to boys who are reading at second to third grade level. Also, to some girls who are into early American history will like it, too.
