Chief Blackfish handed Daniel a belt. "The beads represent three paths," he said. "The red path is the warpath. The white path is the path we can walk together: The black path is death - the path you will walk if you do not surrender." Daniel knew that the settlers would not give up the fort. Could he help them escape the path of death?
In search of open spaces and land to call his own, Daniel Boone fearlessly led a band of brave settlers into the bountiful Kentucky wilderness. Daniel's expert hunting ability, incredible outdoor survival skills, and courage under fire helped his companions stay alive in a dangerous and unknown land despite threatening encounters with soldiers, Indians, and even other settlers.
From the childish pranks of his youth to his daring feats as a pioneer, Daniel Boone's lifelong quest for adventure made him a spirited leader. His heroic accomplishments on the frontier made him an American legend for all time (1734-1820).
