Daniel Boone The Opening of the Wilderness by John Mason Brown


Daniel Boone The Opening of the Wilderness by John Mason Brown

Daniel Boone opened up the American west and more than 200,000 settlers poured into Kentucky on the Wilderness Road he helped establish. John Mason Brown's classic biography brilliantly depicts Boone's life and times, delving into all the complexities of this fascinating man as well as the landmark historical events he lived through - including the Revolutionary War and Louisiana Purchase.


The author...makes of him a real man rather than a myth...The style combines good literary quality with the vigor and forcefulness the subject deserves. -- Chicago Children's Book Center

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
