    The authors capture the pioneering spirit that kept Daniel Boone moving ever-westward, but the book reads sort of like a "And then he did..." account without covering much new ground about the man and his motivations. His exploration of territory claimed by the Shawnee resulted in violence between the two groups, of course, and I would have expected the book to address the fact that the white settlers were moving into lands where others already lived.

The Corel Painter illustrations show the beauty of the areas that were chiefly unsettled at that time.

    Adler's books are always engaging and informative, but I felt that this one glossed over some very significant issues about white settlers moving Westward and encroaching on others land. Regardless, it was interesting to hear about the famous explorer from birth to death and learn about his adventures and how he helped to shape our country.

    I'll admit to a bias. I love Adler's "A Picture Book Of..." series. They offer short, picture-book style biographies well-suited to young readers, with solid facts and great illustrations. This one focuses on one of my favorite historical figures--Daniel Boone. The authors present Boone's life simply and clearly, in a narrative fashion. The story follows him from birth to death as he explores new territories, raises a family, and becomes a significant figure in American history. Unlike some biog I'll admit to a bias.

Unlike some biographers, David and Michael Adler do not dramatize Boone's life. This is a bit of a disappointment because he truly lived a life filled with excitement. However, the book clearly lays out the facts and allows readers to draw their own conclusions. I appreciated the inclusion of a timeline, and the author's note at the end offers further information. The Corel Painter illustrations by Matt Collins deserve special note. They are rich and warm and draw the reader in. All in all this is a good biography for young readers that will be appreciated by elementary school librarians and the readers they serve.

    Using a simple narrative approach, David Adler and his son Michael Adler present the life of Daniel Boone, an American pioneer whose exploits were being told even before his death in 1820. Rather than over-dramatize an already adventurous life, the authors clearly lay out facts and permit readers to draw their own conclusions. The brevity of the text keeps the information focused on the action of Boone’s restless spirit, which spurred him ever-westward.

The brevity of the text keeps the information focused on the action of Boone’s restless spirit, which spurred him ever-westward. However, since the text is abbreviated, it also glosses over the encroachment of settlers on native lands and the hostile relationship between the two groups. The inclusion of a timeline, source notes for quotations, and the authors’ note at the end are helpful additions. Of special note are the illustrations by Matt Collins. The richly colorful digital artwork in double-page spreads is certain to engage readers and enhance the reading experience for young people. The artwork clearly depicts the lushness of the West’s unexplored lands. This is an appealing addition to elementary school and public library collections.

    Genre: Biography Copyright Date: 2013 The author did a good job turning the life of Daniel Boone into an enjoyable narrative. While I didn't feel this book was too informative, it did paint an overall picture of Daniel Boone's life. Kids would probably enjoy this book because it is written like a story. Overall though, it wasn't my favorite biography. Genre: Biography Copyright Date: 2013 The author did a good job turning the life of Daniel Boone into an enjoyable narrative.

    This is a picture book about the life of Daniel Boone. This book references historical events and also has a glossary in the back to help students. This book would be good for older students in third or fourth grade.

    After reading this biography, I was surprised that it had been nominated for the WAW list. There was nothing at all special about it. So it is a no vote for me.

    Well done with an excellent chronology of Daniel Boone's life. Included facts I did not know and I knew a lot about Daniel Boone before I read this book.
