From the Back Cover:

In 1842 Peter Houston, an original settler of Boone's Station, Kentucky (established 1779) wrote his recollections about the famous woodsman, Daniel Boone.Edited by Ted Franklin Belue.

From Library Journal:

Stolen from a carriage in 1887, frontiersman Houston's reminiscence of his experiences with Daniel Boone survives only because another copy had been transcribed. Edited here by historian Belue, the book describes Boone's first penetrations into Kentucky, with a strong emphasis on Indian battles. The slim volume is fleshed out with some of the author's correspondence and lengthy endnotes. The narrative itself is inchoate and difficult for the uninitiated to follow, and the absence of chaptering or any other typographical breaks does not help. Although most of the individual episodes Houston describes are interesting, the lack of context and the brief portion of Boone's life covered will make most general readers long for a conventional biography. Public libraries in Kentucky will want this book, but elsewhere its audience will be academic.?Fritz Buckallew, Univ. of Central Oklahoma Lib., Edmond
