Daniel Boone, The Pioneer of Kentucky

This is a detailed biography of the life and adventures of Daniel Boone (1734-1820). Whilst he is often brushed over in American history classes, Boon was an important frontiersman, pioneer, and explorer, who played a decisive role in furthering European settlement in America. He was also a businessman, soldier and politician, taking part in the French and Indian War and contributing to the settlement of modern day Kentucky.

John Stevens Cabot Abbott (1805-1877) was an American writer, pastor and historian from Maine. He was the brother of children’s book author Jacob Abbott. He wrote fiction and biographies, often with a strong focus on Christian ethics. He gained fame for his "The Mother at Home" and "History of Napoleon Bonaparte".
