Daniel Boone was such an interesting character. He really did help shape America. It is too bad that so many lives were affected as "Americans" moved west. Wish I could re-write history sometimes with everyone just getting along and being friends and neighbors. Daniel Boone had tons of courage and drive to do what he did.

Hopefully people will not judge this book by its awful cover. Inside the biography of well-written for its target audience, quite thorough considering its length and target audience (with the added benefit of age-appropriate discussions of Boone's break from Quakerism and ownership of slaves), and augmented by nice line drawings by another (superior) artist.
In Who Was Daniel Boone? it tells a tale of Daniel Boone's life and the challenges, achievements and personal change he went through himself. He was called "Big Turtle" by the Native Americans and was the best shot whereever he went. I recommend this book because of all the exciting parts.
