Daniel Boone is a familiar name to most Americans, but few know the myriad trails he blazed that led to his fame. Beginning with his birth in the Pennsylvania backwoods and culminating in his final days in Missouri, Daniel Boone: Trailblazer demonstrates the American legend's pioneer spirit and his constant need for more "elbow room."Although Boone spent a lifetime leading pioneers westward to find land, he continually lost his own to land speculators. This lively picture book offers young readers a simple, chronological glimpse of his gains and losses, adventures, and roles as farmer, hunter, surveyor, statesman, husband, father, and grandfather. Boone emerges as a heroic figure, successful and beloved despite his setbacks.Always on the go, Boone's persistence and frontier fortitude make this a riveting read for all ages. Illustrations by Joan C. Waites capture the spirit of the intrepid explorer and depict the American wilderness as it once was.Allen, Nancy Kelly is the author of 'Daniel Boone Trailblazer' with ISBN 9781589802124 and ISBN 1589802128.
