About the Book

Benjamin Nathan Tuggle thinks he’s just like any other twelve-year- old growing up in Eastern Kentucky in 1976—until he learns he can travel back in time.

He knows for sure that he’s not dreaming when he meets Daniel Boone, a hunter, woodsman, and adventurer. The year is 1776, and Boone and the other settlers of Boonesborough are braving the dangers of the wilderness to open up an unexplored frontier.

Wild bears and marauding Indians are no match for Boone. The woodsman has never met a situation he couldn’t talk, fight, or run his way out of, but he might not be able to match Benjamin’s wit and energy. Despite their differences of personality and time period, the two develop a kinship as they discover the passion that they share for nature, adventure, and justice.

To truly make a difference and prove that he belongs, Benjamin must overcome his fears and get involved in events he’s only read about in school. Join him as he journeys back in time, meets legends from the past, and explores the wonderful wilderness of the American frontier in Benjamin Nathan Tuggle: Adventurer.
