Riassunto: Daniel Boone as the typical backwoodsman of the trans-A lleghany region. Despite popular belief, he was not really the founder of Kentucky. Other explorers and hunters had been there long before him; he himself was piloted through Cumberland Gap by John Finley; and his was not even the first permanent settlement in Kentucky, for Harrodsburg preceded it by nearly a year; his services in defense of the West, during nearly a half century of border warfare, were not comparable to those of George Rogers Clark or Benjamin Logan; as a commonwealth builder he was surpassed by several. Nevertheless, Boone spicturesque career possesses a romantic and even pathetic interest that can never fail to charm the student of history.

Descrizione libro Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from Daniel Boone: Wilderness Scout When we think of American pioneers we recall automatically certain names - Daniel Boone, Davy Crockett, Kit Carson, perhaps Simon Kenton. Of course there were hundreds, yes thousands of others, who met the same dangers, exhibited at least approximate skill, fought the same savages. But the names of most of them are unknown: and of the rest only the especial student is aware. Often the more obscure men have performed specific deeds that common legend ascribes to better known names. Columbus, as we know, was really not the first to discover America. Common belief has it that Daniel Boone discovered Kentucky; but actually, as we shall see, he first entered Kentucky lured by the glowing tales of a man named Finley who had, with others, preceded him. Did you ever hear of Finley? But we have all heard of Boone. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
