Praise for Boone: A Biography:

Robert Morgan's account makes it clear why every generation has been able to draw its own lessons from Boone's remarkable life. Lord knows there are some lessons in it for our own time.

— John Shelton Reed, author of Minding the South
. . .

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
. . .

Wow. Boone is a pleasure. I wish more first-rate novelist-poets wrote biography. Robert Morgan has given us the man himself, so much more interesting and impressive than all the myths about him.

— Richard Bausch, author of Wives and Lovers
. . .

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.
