In his old age, though in no spirit of boastfulness, Daniel Boone declared that “the history of the western country has been in history.” Boone was not the only person to help win the west, but he was probably the most well known. As a settler, explorer, Indian fighter, and even Congressman, he helped pave the road westward at the time America was moving in that direction. This volume is the story of his travels over the Wilderness Road that was the super highway west in the late eighteenth century. A story not to be missed by those who want more about the opening of the west for our ancestors.
