LibriVox recording of Daniel Boone, Backwoodsman by C. H. Forbes-Lindsay.
Read in English by volunteer readers.
Daniel Boone is celebrated in history and legend as one of the foremost pioneers who opened up the wilderness of Kentucky. Famed for his skills as a hunter, he was once captured and adopted by the Shawnee tribe from which he ultimately escaped. He was active in the militia and fought in several battles of the American Revolution. In later life he became a politician, being elected to Virginia state assembly, and land speculator, eventually settling in Missouri.
This biography is written for youth in a lively and engaging style dramatizing many of the events of Boone’s adventures, from his youth to his final days. - Summary by Larry Wilson
