Item description for Boone: A Novel of an American Legend by Cameron Judd...
Judd's expansive recounting of the pivotal years of the Boone legend. Boone's life was marked by destiny and contradiction. Quaker born, peace-loving, yet a celebrated warrior. Sympathetic, and much like the American natives, yet trailblazer for white civilization. Devoted to family, he spent months apart. Intensely private, yet called into leadership. He was landed, yet impoverished. Trusted, yet criticized, and courts-martialed by peers.

Great Book Sep 11, 2007
I have read all of Cameron Judds books. He is, without a doubt, my favorite western writer. I wish he would write some new books. It's been a while...
Great fictional/historical tale of the life of Daniel Boone Aug 3, 2001
This is a well done book putting a nice spin on the life of Daniel Boone. It brings together historical facts from the time of this early pioneer and adds a host of interesting fictional characters and adventures. Nothing like a 12 month trapping and hunting excursion to make a guy homesick...well, at least for a couple days or so.
I was impressed with this book. Definitely a recommended read.
