Through the untamed wilderness, Daniel Boone marched forward. He was leading a group of workers to carve out the Wilderness Road. Over hills, through dense forests, along stony paths, and fending off American Indian attacks, Boone never quit. He opened the way for thousands of settlers to move west, establishing the settlement of Booneseborough in 1775. He had many jobs—hunter, scout, soldier, surveyor—and performed them all with the same courage and determination. Authors William R. Sanford and Carl R. Green examine the life of this American legend.
