Daniel Boone Carried Two Books With Him to Kentucky

Daniel Boone carried two books with him when he came to Kentucky in the late 1760s; a Bible and a copy of Gulliver’s Travels. Wonder which one of those are under his arm in this painting?

Get your Bible from me at 18th Century Bibles. We will have your Gulliver’s Travels in the coming months. It’s all scanned and being cleaned up. My apprentice, Jim Darlack​, will be making this book.  Look for it on our web site.
