When he came to Kentucky, DB was already the best known individual in the West. <To him the literarily minded Filson went as the needle seeks the magnet.> He met DB in the village of Lexington. He gathered accounts from Christopher Greenup, Levi Todd, James Harrod, John Cowan, and William Kennedy; <But of these the most prodigal, the most fulsome account came from Boone.> <Caught by the romance of the time and the place, Filson envisioned Daniel Boone as the typical backwoods personality -- the ideal, the conquering spirit -- of the West.> JILLSON1:13-14

"Boone's First View of Kentucky," by Timothy Flint, from THE FIRST WHITE MAN OF THE WEST: <Fair was the scene that lay Before the little band, Which paused upon its toilsome way, To view this new found land. <Field, stream, and valley spread, Far as the eye could gaze, With summer's beauty o'er them shed, And sunlight's brightest rays. <Flowers of the fairest dyes, Trees clothed in richest green; And brightly smiled the deep blue skies, O'er this enchanting scene. <Such was Kentucky then, With wild luxuriance blest; Where no invading hand had been The garden of the West.> quoted in JILLSON1:62
