Who was Daniel Boone? Was written by Sydelle Kramer and Illustrated by George Ulrich Does someone that live in the woods and uses natures resources to live on interest you? Daniel Boone was born on November 2, 1734 in Reading Pennsylvania. Daniels daughter Jemima was captured by the Shawnee Indians and was later rescued by Daniel. On July 14, 1776 3 teenage girls were captured by the Shawnee Indians while they were floating on canoes on the Kentucky river, one of which was Jemima, Daniels daughter. Daniel was in constant battle with the Indians for land. That was always a big struggle for Daniel and his wife Rebecca. At one point Daniel decided to work with the Indians they even gave him an Indian name of Sheltowee, or Big Turtle. I enjoyed this book because it dealt with conflicts in the 1700's and even now a days we still have these arguments. But it shows us a positive side of how to work through it.
