When most people think of the American Age of Exploration, the Lewis and Clark expedition immediately comes to mind. I do not want to take anything away from them but I think Daniel Boone's life story is much more indicative of how the United States was explored and settled. The frontier was constantly pushed forward by countless restless families that would farm for a few years and then sell their property and move westward. Always searching for the perfect farmland but never quite finding it. Daniel Boone was the ultimate example of this restlessness.

The best thing about Cheryl Harness' book is that filled with all the great details that made Daniel Boone's life so extraordinary. This is not a short book. She takes the time to tell her story. I think the greatest weakness of the book is that Harness occassionally strays to a type of writing that tries to make history "relevant" and "cool" to a ten year old. It is an overly informal way of writing to my mind. It may be pefect for a ten year old but to a parent reading it to a child, the style is irritating. Having said that, I am glad that I purchased this book and read it to my son. Recommended with reservations.

We are a homeschooling family and this is a great addition to our library. The text is great, and very informative, but understandable for different age groups, and the illustrations are really well done. We love this book. When I got it, I wanted to just flip through it to see what it was about, and I got all caught up in it, it was that good! You'll really like it!

Lots of great info, but denser than I expected. Not a picture book.

For folks a certain age, there is a fair amount of confusion between Daniel Boone and another American iconn, Davy Crockett, due to the late 1960s television program about Boone which starred Fess Parker (a.k.a. Davy Crockett. ) The TV folks clapped a coonskin cap on Daniel (no doubt trying to tie-in to the success of Parker's earlier series) and forever melded the two men in the mind of a generation.

Harness takes-on that issue early in the book by describing Boone's headgear.

...some frontier folks like the look of a jaunty striped tail, dangling from the back of a "coonskin" cap, but not Daniel. He generally wore a wide-brimmed felt hat.

She includes a full page illustration of Daniel with his gear, powder horn, tomahawk, buckskins britches, leggins etc. all clearly labeled. Life on the Kentucky and Missouri frontier is richly described with its need for self-reliance, the brutal Indian wars, hunting and trapping, pelt theft, and land disputes . Daniel and his family scratched out a living on the outposts of civilization and held on to that life tenaciously. At one point the Shawnee kidnapped Boone and held him so long that his wife Rebecca thought he was dead.

The fragility of human life in the wilderness is underscored by a poignant story of Daniel's brother in law, John Stewart who disappeared while hunting. His body was found years later only identifiable by his powder horn carved with the initials J.S.

I enjoy the style of Cheryl Harness's books. She provides a very high rate of information per square inch through her use of engaging artwork and text. A timeline of world events runs across the bottom of each page. I loved knowing that while Daniel was trapping for pelts in the wild, Handel was composing "Music for the Royal Fireworks." There is also an excellent list of resources, other reading, "places well worth visiting" and an index. Harness also describes the process she uses to create the pen and ink pictures through out the book.

Daniel Boone's life is the stuff of legends and this book tells his story in the context of the times with depth and detail.
