One of the most famous figures of the American frontier, Daniel Boone clashed with the Shawnee and sought to exploit the riches of a newly settled region. Despite his fame, his life was wrapped in mystery. Archivist Lyman Draper was a collector of oral history and responsible for most of what we do know about Boone. Draper walked hundreds of mile during the Civil War to save historical materials.
In 1851 he visited Boone's youngest son, Nathan. With over 300 pages of notes the interview became the most important source of information about Daniel Boone. Accurate, firsthand information about his years in Kentucky, his capture by Indians, his defense of Fort Boonesboro along with his hunting expeditions and final years in Missouri are all detailed. The book is an engaging account of one of America's great pioneers.
