About the Author:

Michael P. Spradlin is the author of numerous books for children including Texas Rangers: Legendary Lawmen, the Spy Goddess series, and the Youngest Templar trilogy. He lives with his family in Lapeer, Michigan, and, like Daniel Boone, he won't admit to ever being lost but will say he was mighty bewildered once for three days. He can be visited on the Web at www.michaelspradlin.com.
Ard Hoyt is the illustrator of the New York Times bestseller I'm a Manatee by John Lithgow, among many other books. He grew up exploring the woods and fields not far from Chillicothe, Ohio, where Boone was held captive by the Shawnee long ago. This is his first nonfiction book and proof that truth really can be better than fiction. Ard was honored to tell this story in pictures with his good friend, Mike Spradlin.
