Boone: A Novel of an American Legend
by Cameron Judd
Cameron Judd's expansive recounting of the pivotal years of the Boone legend. Boone's life was marked by destiny and contradiction. Quaker born, peace-loving, yet a celebrated warrior. Devoted to family, he spent long months apart, leaving his resilient wife to fend for herself and their children. Sympathetic, and much like the American natives, yet he was a trailblazer for white civilization.
"Cameron Judd is the voice of the Appalachian frontier. The danger, the beauty, the love of freedom, and the adventure of taming a land all echo through his wonderful stories. Boone is Judd at his best, and that is very good indeed." – Sharyn McCrumb, author of St.Dale and The Ballad Series
"Judd is a keen observer of the human heart as well as a fine action writer."
– Publishers Weekly(for Timber Creek)
"Carefully researched historical novel offering a much less mythological profile of the remarkable Tennessean ... (with an) abundance of historical detail, it is a heartfelt attempt to glimpse the soul of an American hero. By any standard, Judd succeeds." – Wes Lukowsky, Booklist (for Crockett of Tennessee)
"Brilliant characterizations ... The classically suspenseful, neatly ironic ending is flawless. – Publishers Weekly (for Jerusalem Camp)"Judd writes a mean story." –Zane Grey's West (for Timber Creek)
