Summary
Imagine being asked to explore an unknown part of the country. That's exactly what happened to Daniel Boone in the mid-1700s. Boone and others cut a path through the wilderness of Kentucky and Virginia. Lively language, historical illustrations, and primary source journal entries from Boone and his fellow settlers help readers feel as if they were a part of the journey. Meets Common Core critical thinking standards, and provides strong ties to social studies standards on westward expansion.
