For sure, Notchy Bob, it isn't really a "kid" book...definitely for adults (us big kids). I learned a lot about the times when Kentucky was first explored and settled, and Boone's involvement just about every step of the way during that period. Kind of hard to put this read down once started.Wiksmo, I have that book! Daniel Boone, Wilderness Scout, by Stewart Edward White. I must have read it ten times when I was a kid. My mom was an English teacher and figured at one point I should have gotten tired of the book, so she took it to school for the other kids to read. I missed it, and when I finally got it back, it was not quite in as good shape as when I had it all to myself. I was disappointed, but glad to get it back. But, it is still in one piece and I still have it. I would like to point out that it is not really a "juvenile" book. Adults who frequent this forum would probably find it a good read.
