<Boone always did a good deal of solitary scouting. He had a habit of sitting silently at work -- darning his hunting shirt, mending his leggins, molding bullets -- while others talked. Just as silently he would disappear. "And now," loungers by the fire would remark, "we shall know something sure; for old Daniel's on the track." Later a gaunt, solitary shadow would slip into a cabin door, and Boone would be back with word of a new band of raiders, or with news that the woods were clear." (BAKELESS:255-56, citing James Handasyd Perkins, MEMOIRS AND WRITINGS, 1:319, 2:265)
