In 1772 DB was "probably traveling from one Cherokee village to another, living in the wigwams, hunting with the braves, talking with the chiefs. He was sounding the Indians to see whether they were willing to sell Kentucky. He is said to have concluded very soon that they would hand the country over to the white men if the price were high enough." Thus the speculation that it was Boone who convinced Henderson to make the purchase at Sycamore Shoals.
