Thomas D. Clark: <He was a sweaty old boy, but he lived in a time of sweaty old boys.> <Boone would have been the first to say there were others who were better Indian fighters. He wasn't an Indian fighter who went out looking for Redskins to shoot up. But Boone was a master at understanding Indian psychology and thinking like an Indian, a characteristic which saved the day more than once.> <All Boone ever claimed to be was a trailblazer. He couldn't help what Filson wrote about him. Filson was publicizing the Western country, and Boone was the symbol he used.> Quoted in Joe Creason, "Daniel Boone: A Kentucky Hero?" JOURNAL-COURIER MAGAZINE 12/9/1962, written to respond to Robert McDowell's criticism of DB in the magazine the week earlier.
