Jemima Boone is as thrilled to tell you about her daddy, Daniel Boone, as you will
be to read her story about the settlement of the Kentucky frontier. Adventure and
danger are behind every tree. Along with the Boone family triumphs are tragedies
that Jemima painfully but sensitively shares with the reader. Children will quickly
relate to Jemima, who is ten years old, as the book opens in 1773. Her wit and frontier
humor will captivate young readers.
The Boone Society, Inc. mission is “Preserving America’s Frontier History through
Education.” Daniel Boone’s Kentucky focuses on the late 1700’s westward movement
through Virginia, the Cumberland Gap, the Boone Trace and into the frontier of Kentucky.
Russell Lunsford’s exhaustive research and unique style of writing for children highlights
Boone’s contribution in settling Kentucky. It is a reading adventure for the nation’s
youth and for future generations.
