Originally published in 1916, this life of the famous frontiersman for young readers gets away from the "dry as dust" type of biography. It describes as interestingly, as forcibly and as vividly as the subject matter deserves the adventureful life of one who has helped to make history. The book has been written with the childs point of view in mind; those events in Daniel Boones career being emphasized which are calculated to appeal to the younger reader though so skillfully has this been done that the narrative, always authentic, is yet well balanced and rounded out.
