Lofaro presents Boone as a man always on the move and never really satisfied unless looking for the next adventure. Drawn to the woods and hunting at an early age, Boone’s attempts at a settled life never lasted more than a few years. After serving as a wagoner with General Edward Braddock’s forces at his famous defeat in 1755, Boone married Rebecca Bryan in 1756 and settled near her family in North Carolina. The years in Kentucky are those from which the legend of Daniel Boone was born, and Lofaro provides detailed descriptions of events that in later years took on almost mythical features.
