Who was the real Johnny Appleseed? Did Jim Bowie actually wrestle alligators? Featuring six American folk heroes, this series tells the stories of these legendary people within the cultural history of each figure's time. Children will not only learn about these classic legends, but also will discover how the stories came about and why not all the stories about these heroes are true. Readers will be able to explore the character of each historical figure, learn about how each legendary person has become part of America's cultural heritage, and how the lives of these figures continue to be celebrated today.

225 years ago, Daniel Boone roamed the forests of North America, moving from Pennsylvania to North Carolina, Kentucky, and Virginia. This American legend blazed the Wilderness Trail, explored Kentucky, and founded his own settlement, Boonesborough, in Kentucky.
