Daniel Boone is one of the most famous figures of the American frontier. He clashed with the Shawnee and became a land speculator who sought to exploit the riches of a newly settled region. Because fact and fiction have become so enmeshed in the Boone legend, Lyman Draper's interviews with Boone's son, Nathan, and his wife, Olive, provide a wealth of accurate information about Boone's first trip to Kentucky, his capture by Indians, his defense of Fort Boonesboro, and his lengthy hunting trips. This text brings together the Nathan Boone interviews for the first time in an easily accessible edition. The Draper interviews with the Boones are one of the most important sources of information about life in the trans-Appalachian West and they give a portrait of a pioneer.
