Praise for Boone: A Biography:

Not only does Daniel Boone come vividly alive in these pages but also his wilderness landscape and historical era... Robert Morgan has long been one of America's best fiction writers and poets; Boone is a striking confirmation that he is now one of our best biographers as well.

— Ron Rash, author of Saints at the River
. . .

A narrative tour de force... Informed by serious scholarship and propelled by superb storytelling, Morgan's book captures the heart of an American original.

— Daniel Blake Smith, author of the screenplays Trail of Tears and Black Indians
. . .

This is a riveting account of the real Boone... The brilliant final chapter, unique among Boone biographies, reveals the impact of the frontiersman's legend on the American literary canon... This is the best of all possible Boones.

— Michael Kammen, former president of the Organization of American Historians
. . .

A beautifully written biography of American scout Daniel Boone as a frontier Moses, leading his people over the western mountains to the rich promised lands of Kentucky... Strongly recommended.

— Library Journal, starred review
. . .

Boone comes fully alive in [these] pages. Morgan's objectivity gives us a completely realized man.
