Detailed plot synopsis reviews of The Frontiersmen; I would have to say that this book is one of the best, if not THE best book that I have ever read. I am an 8th grade teacher and I use this book in my classes and try to make the name Simon Kenton. The great six-foot-five frame of Simon Kenton and his eighty-one years of life characterize and contain this epic-proportioned narrative of the confrontation of whites and Indians along the Ohio from pre-Revolutionary days to the death of Tecumseh inwhich marked the end of Indian resistance.
Kentucky settler, Indian fighter, woodsman, patriot, Kenton epitomized the frontiersmen. Directed by Lesley Selander. With William Boyd, George 'Gabby' Hayes, Russell Hayden, Evelyn Venable. A pretty and gentle schoolteacher from Boston transforms the lives of a spoiled boy and the other residents at 'Bar 20' Ranch, and is courted by Crockett city's Mayor, who is really a livestock thief.
The name Daniel Boone conjures up the image of an illiterate, coonskin cap-wearing patriot who settled Kentucky and killed countless Indians. The scarcity of surviving autobiographical material has allowed tellers of his story to fashion a Boone of their own liking, and his myth has evolved in countless stories, biographies, novels, poems, and paintings.
