I am ruined for modern life

Daniel Boone has been a personal hero of mine for a long time, but after this extensive biography, I feel that I have come to know the real Boone underneath the huge legend. I see so much of the little boy that I was in this account of Boone. Running out of the house with a pack filled with rope, a sandwich and a flashlight to follow the creek in my parent's backyard all day until dark. I have always loved the outdoors, and felt that there must certainly be something wonderful just a little deeper into the woods, or farther down the creek.I believe that many of us can connect with the yearning to live the adventures of Boone and to be as blessed as he was to come out safe in the end. Stripping away the legend, Mr. Morgan leaves the listener/reader with a simple, endearing and honest impression of Boone as he was. I appreciated that rather than explaining away or ignoring the flaws and shortcomings of Daniel Boone, the author recorded them, and put them into the context of a multifaceted person. One example was in regard to his familiarity with and seeming acceptance of slavery. He states that this goes to show that even good people, who know better, sometimes go along with what is familiar to them and accepted by society at large. He doesn't say that Boone was a saint, or a devil, but a man that tried to be a good person, and that sometimes he was a member of a society that had improvements to make.

A movie for your mind

Very well constructed, written and narrated, I had a hard time putting it down.
