Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carolmckee | 2/15/2014

    " Very comprehensive history of Daniel Boone and the opening of the American west. Must be a history lover to pick this one up however! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dave | 2/6/2014

    " A new twist on historical biography. Mr. Mogan's 1st bio. He previously published 14 volumes of poetry!! The only reason I withheld the 5th star is his tendency to (as poets do) get repeatative. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Troy | 1/13/2014

    " It was a good book but it jumped around alot. But did learn alot about Boone that did'nt know about him.it was very inframational. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alex (Al) | 12/20/2013

    " Whoops! I never put this in my read section! Good book. A nice book to read when one gets tired of Koontz...not that I'm ever really tired of him. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Travis | 10/31/2013

    " A wonderful glimpse into early frontier America. Made me want to tramp off into the woods and go exploring. By the way one summer Boone killed around 80 bears. What did you do this summer? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pat | 10/25/2013

    " Another great book by Robert Morgan. I liked this book because again it read like a novel and learned that Boone NEVER wore a coonskin hat! I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in the exploration into Kentucky before and during the Revolutionary War. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ande | 10/14/2013

    " Although, I haven't read this, my partner highly recommends this to all you history buffs. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 William Cox | 10/10/2013

    " I learned a great deal about Daniel Boone, but I also learned a great deal about life in the frontier. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barbara | 10/6/2013

    " I don't know if there is anything to the family legends that I am doubly descended from Daniel Boone, but I learned a lot about him. I did not care for some of the author's flowery digressions but overall, it was very informative. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bill Subalusky | 4/10/2013

    " Well written and interesting. Gives a better ubnderstanding of the early American relationships with the American indians "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kim Nardi | 3/20/2013

    " Thought at times was very dry and often repetitive. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jim | 2/21/2013

    " A great look into life in the 1700's in America and the settling of their "west." I got about a third of the way through before I had to return it to the library. I'll try to come back later and finish it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Diane | 5/26/2012

    " I learned more about Daniel Boone than I ever wanted to know. Absolutely fascinating. Mr. Morgan's attention to detail is amazing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melea | 5/7/2012

    " Fascinating, detailed look at an American legend. Mr. Morgan looks at Daniel Boone as a real person, that includes his faults as well as his strengths. Daniel Boone is now not only a lesson, but a real person as opposed to a mythical character. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dave | 11/6/2011

    " Interesttin biography of a iconic frontier figure. The author paints Boone as a larger than life figure, and according to the book he really was such a person. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kristy Buzbee | 3/2/2011

    " I give up! It's so boring! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Douglas | 10/5/2010

    " Great story of Daniel Boone's life. It does assume you know something of his life and the various debates surrounding it, but gives you enough details to understand what those debates are. Fascinating read about the prototypical American woodsman. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sherry (sethurner) | 9/22/2010

    " I don't usually give up on a book, but there was more information here than I really needed to know right now. It actually was interesting, but was taking me too long to wade through than I wanted to invest. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Irene | 4/28/2010

    " enjoyed learing about a childhood icon but did not like the comic look at his life. this book would make a great mini series "
