Daugherty’s heroically illustrated biography of Boone is a paean to his subject’s resourcefulness, skill, and determination and to life of English pioneers and settlers as they became Americans and expanded the bounds of the United States westward beyond the Appalachian mountains. Or to put it in contemporary terms, a poetically phrased saga of settler colonialism, white supremacy, and genocide. The indigenous inhabitants of the land are portrayed as brutal enemies in both prose and portraiture, unless they are aiding an explorer, and as noble savages but only after they have been extinguished. In this book when Indians attack and butcher whites, it was barbaric, but when whites employ exactly the same tactics on Indians it is heroic.

Putting this book in its historical context, Daniel Boone was awarded the Newbery medal in 1940, a time when Americans feared a war with, ironically, some white skinned savages in the process of conquering large parts of Europe, and their oriental allies where doing much the same in Asia, and in a time when the ideology of racism and eugenics was a large part of white America’s ideaology. Not surprisingly, the book is currently out of print.

I'm sure this was intended to inspire children and get them interested in history. James Daugherty hero-worshipped Daniel Boone, and this is clearly intended to be a story of the legend, not the man. He describes Boone's burning of Indian towns and villages as if they are heroic actions. The description of an Indian woman with a bow and arrow trying to protect her loved ones in a long house was particularly disturbing. The white men shot her 20 times and set the building on fire, burning alive the 46 men inside. The burning child dragging himself through the street didn't seem to be a problem for him either. The nearly constant references to "red varmints,""red dogs," "savage demons," etc. made the book extremely difficult to read.

In 1940 this was deemed the best of the best of children's literature. Thank goodness times have changed. This does not belong in any children's classroom.
