Sample text

Rebecca gave birth to their eighth child that spring. A few months later, the whole Boone family set out for Kentucky. A number of Boones and Bryans joined the party. Each group took only what could be carried on packhorses. Small children rode in baskets tied to the saddles. The party made slow progress. Daniel had to send back for more supplies. His sixteen-year-old son, James, rode with the supply train. On October 9, a Delaware war party fired on the group as the men lay sleeping. The first shots killed two men and wounded James Boone and Henry Russell.

Moving swiftly, they grabbed two rifles and hid in a canebrake. The Shawnee let them go. They were in a rush to get home with their loot. By this time, Finley and the others had fled. Daniel and John went back to trapping. Daniel’s brother Squire helped by showing up with fresh supplies. A month later, John failed to keep a rendezvous. Daniel searched for him but found only the letters JS carved on a tree. Five years later, a hunter found a skeleton inside a hollow tree. The body could well have been that of John Stewart.
