I thought this book was excellent. It told the biography of what Daniel Boone did in his life. Daniel Boone loved to be outdoors since he was a kid. He could shoot and track animals better than any person he knew. He moved a lot, he did not like to be indoors or in one place. He moved to Kentucky which was Indian land at the time. He had to fight with Indians for territory and farm land. Read this book to find out what happens next.

This was the first chapter book I read by myself. I read it out loud, but usually no one was sitting by me. I liked Daniel Boone. He could cut wood when he was 5.
Nathaniel Mckenzie
It was ok. He became an Indian and when the French/Indian war started he didn't know what side he was going to be on. But then he went to the British side.
Carly Christensen
I liked it because it taught you how to live in the wild like Daniel Boone. And I learned about Daniel Boone.
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.

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.
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.
Jones Family
It was exciting and funny it told about his life. It told what he like to do and interesting facts about him. And about his family and what he did when he was young

Brayton enjoyed reading about Daniel Boone. Especially when he found out that he is a distant relative.
Very good book can't wait to read more about him. He was very interesting to read about.
