Frontiersman describes how Boone's life and achievements helped make and change America: the opening and settlement of the old West, the breaking of Indian power and the driving of Indians west across the Mississippi, and the destruction of game animals and the decline of market hunting in the east. In these pages, the reader meets Boone as he was: loner and family man; woodsman and leader; land speculator and unsuccessful businessman; Indian fighter and friend.
