More About Daniel Boone, Francis Lister Hawks & Colonel Daniel Boone

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Daniel Boone (November 2, 1734 [O.S. October 22] - September 26, 1820) was an American pioneer, explorer, and frontiersman whose frontier exploits made him one of the first folk heroes of the United States. Boone is most famous for his exploration and settlement of what is now the Kentucky, which was then part of Virginia but on the other side of the mountains from the settled areas. Despite some resistance from American Indian tribes such as the Shawnee, in 1775 Boone blazed his Wilderness Road through the Cumberland Gap in the Appalachian Mountains from North Carolina and Tennessee into Kentucky. There he founded the village of Boonesborough, Kentucky, one of the first American settlements west of the Appalachians. Before the end of the 18th century, more than 200,000 European people migrated to Kentucky/Virginia by following the route marked by Boone.

Daniel Boone was born in 1734 and died in 1820.

Daniel Boone: His Own Story  Sep 15, 2008
Daniel Boone: His Own Story

Boone is my Great Grandfather with 5 greats. The stories are true and exciting and interesting. Boone does not have a bias for or against indians. What I like about his stories in the book is that he explains why he did things. For example he jumped around in the open to get the two indians to shoot their weapons. After they fired, he had time to shoot one and then go after the other with his hunting knife which was a long knife. He did not put down his empty rifle. He used it like a shield to block the attack of the second indian like a Roman sholdier would fight.
The only problem with the book is that his speech was not so close to Oxford English and I believe someone else rewrote the stories in a more intelligent way from the way he actually spoke.
Daniel Boone: His Own Story?  May 26, 2008
There are many, many, factual errors in this book, starting with Daniel's birth date which is given as 1746. He was actually born in 1734. He married in 1756, so the date given in the book would have made him only 10 years old on his wedding day. The "shining eyes" tale has long been discounted by the family. Human eyes do not shine in a light like animal eyes. The first 28 pages are written in the most flowery of language. Daniel Boone was uneducated, and I do not believe he spoke this way or wrote this way. This is a very poor book for anyone to depend on for facts about Daniel Boone's life. There are many better ones out there. Don't waste your money on this one.

A bit of Crocket  Aug 8, 2007
Here's a word from someone who should know more about history but does not (I'm working on it). This book on Crocket is really not quite what some of you might expect. Only the very beginning is by Crocket himself and it's quite brief. I was very disappointed by that. Had I known more about history I might have known ahead of time that he did not write a whole lot (although he comes across as quite intelligent and learned). The rest of the book is just not that great. Worth a read, but not a hearty recommendation.
