"Many dark and sleepless nights have I been a companion for owls, separated from the cheerful society of men, scorched by the summer's sun and pinched by the winter's cold - an instrument ordained to settle the wilderness."
Trailblazer and legendary hero Daniel Boone fearlessly explored the early American frontier. Motivated by a powerful sense of purpose, Daniel Boone blazed the Wilderness Road through the Cumberland Gap. Thousands followed, settling in Boonesborough, Kentucky, to form one of the first English-speaking communities west of the Appalachians. Boone writes surprisingly well for someone of not much education and you get to experience first hand discoveries of the Kentucky wilderness. The biography which follows helps fill in the rest of his life and some missing details.
