Review: Daniel Boone

User Review  - Annie - Goodreads

This one hasn't aged well, in my opinion. It was a dull retelling of a life full of adventure, and there was almost no contextualization of the conflicts between the Native Americans and the white settlers. Understandable, given the publication date, but not great for today's readers. Read full review
