“Robert Morgan’s lyric mountain language is equal to the epic sweep of history, to the grandeur of the land itself.” — Lee Smith, author of Mrs. Darcy and the Blue-Eyed Stranger
The focus of our Lucky 7 special this month is non-fiction because sometimes the truth is more fantastic than fiction, especially in the case of Boone by Robert Morgan. Discover the real man behind the great American figure for only $1.99 through November 30th.
The story of Daniel Boone is the story of America—its ideals, its promise, its romance, and its destiny.
Bestselling, critically acclaimed author Robert Morgan reveals the complex character of a frontiersman whose heroic life was far stranger and more fascinating than the myths that surround him.
This rich, authoritative biography offers a wholly new perspective on a man who has been an American icon for more than two hundred years—a hero as important to American history as his more political contemporaries George Washington and Benjamin Franklin. Extensive endnotes, cultural and historical background material, and maps and illustrations underscore the scope of this distinguished and immensely entertaining work.
“Poet and novelist Morgan has made a valiant effort in his absorbing and stirring chronicle of the great frontiersman… Although the reality of Boone’s life and character is more complicated than the mythology, he still emerges here as a fascinating, admirable, and even noble character.” – Booklist, starred review
