About this title


Traces the life of the colonial pioneer, hunter, and woodsman, from his youth in the Pennsylvania wilderness to his adventures exploring the frontier, especially the "dark and bloody" land called Kentucky.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 7-12 The Boone biographical shelf has abounded with romanticized, mythologized, and truncated versions of the life of this American frontier hero known more through film fiction than in fact. Lawlor's book is a sound attempt to right the record. She sets Boone against his strong Quaker backgroundpresenting basically a peaceful, solitary man with a passion for the long wilderness hunt, an uncanny kinship with Indian ways, little tolerance for the drudgery of settlement life, and never any sense of money management. Boone's life undoubtedly overflowed with the drama and adventure of genuinely heroic events. While Lawlor includes them all, she fails to capture that sense of excitement and anticipation to lead readers eagerly from chapter to chapter. Just as her tale becomes engrossing, she makes some over-the-fence observations and loses the immediacy. There is also some trite and repetitious phrasing. Nevertheless, Daniel Boone, well-grounded in historical records, meets this age group's real need for correct information about the colonial frontier. Elliott's The Long Hunter (Readers Digest Pr, 1976) is sprightly written, but intended for more mature readers. May's Daniel Boone and the American West (Bookwright Pr, 1986) is designed for a younger audience. Katharine Bruner, Brown Middle School, Harrison, Tenn.
