Daniel Boone: The Opening of the Wilderness Review by Lisa Barthuly

Sterling Publishing/Flying Point Press
The Pilot House/ Lewis Wharf
Boston, MA 02110

Flying Point Press publishes some of the greatest historical stories and events in their line of lovely titles!

Daniel Boone: The Opening of the Wilderness, penned by John Mason Brown, takes us on a journey out west, after the colonists have won the American Revolution. We follow Daniel Boone as he guides the first settlers west of the Appalachian Mountains. We get to know Boone, who was quite the woodsman, explorer, and hunter, and get a vivid look at the dangers of the frontier west!

This was a wonderful, fun read, full of action, an original Landmark publication, with over 160 pages of great historical reading. This would make a fantastic family read-aloud, a living book for homeschool history, or just plain reading enjoyment!

Excellent! A must have for your homeschool library!
