    The truth of it is that Daniel Boone, captured by the Shawnee, now the adopted son of a chief he respects and husband to a Shawnee wife, does not want to come back to his settler life. But when he learns the Shawnee and the English plan to attack the fort he founded, where his white wife and children remain, he escapes in order to warn them. No arms open to greet him, however: Rebecca has taken all of their children save one - Jemima - back east. The other settlers view him with suspicion, and some of them want him hanged as a traitor.

    Here is Daniel Boone as you've never seen him: Debut novelist Alix Hawley presents Boone's life, from his childhood in a Quaker colony through two stints captured by Indians as he attempted to settle Kentucky, the death of a son at the hands of the same Indians, and the rescue of a daughter. The prose rivals Hilary Mantel's and Peter Carey's, conveying that sense of being inside the head of a storied historical figure about which much nonsense is spoken while also feeling completely contemporary.
