Filson's narrative composed in "Chateaubriand-like prose". (WALTON1:10) After publication in America it was published in Paris and Frankfort (three German editions), and reprints appeared in both London and New York. The Boone part was so popular the entire work was referred to as "Filson's Boone." (WALTON1:11) AUTOBIOGRAPHY

The personna of the narrative is "the natural man, innately good, freed from the tensions of society and from the shackles of convention, finding supreme happiness in the simple life. That these were Boone's own words, few believed; but that they expressed his philosophy was assumed by the readers who elected Boone the popular hero of the Romantic revolution."
