Jemima Boone is as thrilled to tell you about her daddy, Daniel Boone, as you will be to read her story about the settlement of the Kentucky frontier. Adventure and danger are behind every tree. Along with the Boone family triumphs are tragedies that Jemima painfully but sensitively shares with the reader. Children will quickly relate to Jemima, who is ten years old, as the book opens in 1773. Her wit and frontier humor will captivate young readers.
