Daniel Boone was born an adventurer. Before the United States had freed itself from Britain's rule, Boone was blazing trails westward across America. He helped establish Boonesborough, Kentucky, one of the first American settlements west of the Appalachian Mountains. Boone died in 1820, but already tales of his adventures were being told across the United States.

Daniel Boone's spirit shines in the latest addition to this best-selling series.
