"Boone was careful to show every sign of contentment and went quietly about the Indian camp, whistling to himself as he usually did at home, 'apparently so contented among a parcel of dirty Indians.' [quote from ?] He was, in fact, living the life he loved best. Some of his fellow prisoners were amazed and disgusted. Blackfish and his squaw treated him with invariable affection, addressed him as son, made no distinction between him and their two real children. They had recently lost a son -- killed, it is sometimes said, by Boone's own men in the rescue of the kidnapped girls -- and Boone had now, by tribal ritual, taken his place." (BAKELESS:178)
