<Boone emerges . . . from the biographies of the 1800s, which are sometimes oppressively didactic but not pointlessly anecdotal, as a romantic epic hero who is mostly remembered for his intensive exploring, his mighty hunting, his resourceful woodcraft, his cunning Indian fighting, his sincere Indian peacemaking, his humanitarian concern, his "intellectual" sophistication, his contemplative mind, and his touch of dry humor." (SMITH2:41)
