While the name, Daniel Boone, is familiar to many people, his many deeds and exploits are not. Boone’s life was one adventure after another, from exploring new places despite the presence of danger and death to going on long wilderness hunting trips that were daily battles of survival to being held prisoner in situations in which each day could be his last. Throughout it all Boone moved steadily onward, consumed with a burning desire to see what was over the next ridge, or where the next trail led. His courage and determination were extraordinary. His life was legendary.

Russell Roberts has written and published nearly 40 books for adults and children on a variety of subjects, including baseball, memory power, business, New Jersey history, and travel. The lives of American figures of distinction is a particular area of interest for him. He has written numerous books for Mitchell Lane, including Pedro Menendez de Aviles, Philo Farnsworth Invents TV, Robert Goddard, Bernardo de Galvez, and Where Did the Dinosaurs Go? He lives in Bordentown, New Jersey, with his family and a fat, fuzzy, and crafty calico cat named Rusti.From School Library Journal:
Grade 2-4–There is nothing great or even good about these biographies. The writing is poor and uninspired, and the illustrations convey little information or sense of excitement. In Daniel Boone, readers are told, Daniel became a good hunter. The Indians taught him about the forest. He learned animal noises.... He learned survival. Davy Crockett consistently uses the term Texians, but it is only defined in the appended glossary. Prose such as, ...Polly was sick. Soon she died. Davy then married... is not going to encourage good writing skills. While these titles might be considered easy readers, they offer little to students doing reports or to those who are curious about early Americans.–Susan Lissim, Dwight School, New York City
