Simon Kenton Unlikely Hero : Biography of a Frontiersman
by Karen Ruth Meyer




Overview -

Indian attack, disease, even near-starvation--early pioneers faced these and more. Never one to run away from danger, frontiersman Simon Kenton used his scouting skills to aid them whenever he could. Rifle loaded, Kenton crept as silently as an Indian to rescue kidnapped settlers.
His narrow escapes from Shawnee Indians rivaled those of his famous friend, Daniel Boone. Simon's influence on the events of his day can be gauged by the men he counted as friends--the daring military leader George Rogers Clark, fellow frontiersman Boone, and the renegade Simon Girty, whom settlers loved to hate.
Bravely facing gauntlets and tortures, Kenton earned great respect from the Shawnee, and admiration from the pioneers. But would the death sentence of burning at the stake be his undoing? Tramp the woods with frontiersman Simon Kenton and gain a new appreciation for what the pioneers faced as they sought to claim their own slice of wilderness on the Ohio frontier.
