<Implicit in Boone is the typical inner conflict between civilization and the wilderness. He is both the pioneer who paves the way for civilized life and the natural man who prefers the simplicity and rugged vitality of a wilderness environment as an end in itself. To Boone, the frontier is simultaneously a challenge and an inspriation, something to subdue and improve and something to preserve and enjoy.> LOFARO3:vii

<Unfortunately Filson's bombastic, ghost-written retelling of the pioneer's "autobiographical" adventures represented the frontiersman as more a philosopher than an Indian fighter and contained a number of historical inaccuracies. Yet the information gleaned from Filson's personal interviews with Boone and his companions still managed to shine through the rhetoric.> LOFARO3:ix

<His businesses were doing well, but social pressures [e.g., the disapproval of the Friends meeting] mounted to such a degree that he resolved to leave Berks County. The desire to see each of his children with good land, now too costly to obtain in Pennsylvania, and the repidly decreasing fertility of his own fields due to current agricultural methods, undoubtedly contributed to the decision as well.> LOFARO3:8
