Born October 22, 1734, Daniel Boone loved hunting and playing in the woods as a child. As a young adult working as a tracker and guide, Daniel made his way west to Kentucky. He attempted several times to move his family there, only to be turned back by Indian attacks. Eventually he succeeded by blazing a new road to Kentucky, thereafter he became known as the foremost contributor to the exploration and settlement of the state.
