Early Praise for Boone Biography

In a July 28 review, Publishers Weekly declared Meredith Mason Brown’s Frontiersman: Daniel Boone and the Making of America (Sept.) to be “the most readable and balanced” as well as “the most complete and satisfying” of recent Boone biographies.  The review goes on to say that “Brown’s Boone remains a larger-than-life figure: heroic without posturing, steadfast without foolishness, patriotic without Indian hatred. This is a book for those who seek an accurate, not pietistic, history of a way of life long past.”
