About this product
- DescriptionIn 1842, Peter Houston, an original settler of Boone's Station, Kentucky, wrote his recollections about the famous woodsman Daniel Boone. Houston's memoir spanned decades, from Boone's earliest forays into Kentucky until 1799, the year the famed woodsman left the Commonwealth for Spanish Missouri. Featured within are hair-raising tales of wild exploit; new Boone lore; descriptions of Indians and of woodsmen's skills; a firsthand look at one of the last pitched fights in the western theater of the American Revolutionary War, the devastating Battle of Blue Licks; and precise descriptions and observations of dress, religion, language, and other important aspects of early American life. Meticulously transcribed, extensively antated, and well illustrated, this book is a newly unearthed historical gem offering rare glimpses into the life of America's archetypal frontier hero.
