"There was always a faintly chivalrous not in Daniel Boone's warfare with the Indians. He hated killing. He was never cruel himself (there is no record that he ever took a scalp), and he was never the civtim of cruelty. The Indians admired him, were invariably pleased on the rare occasions when they outwitted him, were delighted to have caught him this time, and later obstinately refused to give him up, even for cash. Daniel Boone was as good a woodsman as any of them, and a far better shot. Such men were valuable in any camp. The Shawnees regarded him as a prospective ornament to the tribe and made no secret of their plans." (BAKELESS:163) BCAPTIVITY2 INDIANVIEWS
