Biographical Memoir of Daniel Boone

Release Date: 2010-01-01
Genre: Biography & Autobiography

The Biographical Memoir of Daniel Boone: The First Settler of Kentucky, written in 1833, is an embellished account of Daniel Boone's life by Timothy Flint. Like other authors, Flint interviewed Boone for details, but he added his own version of events, making Boone fight bears, escape rampant Indians on a swinging vine, and forming him into an all-around backwoodsman hero. The retelling made the book one of the best-selling biographies of the 1800s, was the inspiration for literary figures like Davy Crockett, Don Juan, and Tarzan, and continues to influence the public picture of the nature man type even today.TIMOTHY FLINT (1780-1840) was a clergyman and scientist from Massachusetts. He graduated from Harvard in 1800 and became a pastor for the Congregational Church in Lunenburg, Massachusetts in 1802. Because of the many chemistry experiments he conducted (which no one understood), Flint was accused of counterfeiting money, to which he responded with a slander lawsuit. As a result, he left his congregation to travel along the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers as a missionary for almost eight years. In addition to clergy work, Flint edited and contributed to Knickerbocker and Western Review magazines and wrote several books, essays, and short stories, most of which focused on backwoods and missionary life.

From Daniel Boone to Captain America

Author: Chad A. Barbour
Publisher: Univ. Press of Mississippi
ISBN: 9781496806857
Release Date: 2016-06-27
Genre: Social Science

From nineteenth-century American art and literature to comic books of the twentieth century and afterwards, Chad A. Barbour examines in From Daniel Boone to Captain America the transmission of the ideals and myths of the frontier and playing Indian in American culture. In the nineteenth century, American art and literature developed images of the Indian and the frontiersman that exemplified ideals of heroism, bravery, and manhood, as well as embodying fears of betrayal, loss of civilization, and weakness. In the twentieth century, comic books, among other popular forms of media, would inherit these images. The Western genre of comic books participated fully in the common conventions, replicating and perpetuating the myths and ideals long associated with the frontier in the United States. A fascination with Native Americans also emerged in comic books devoted to depicting the Indian past of the US In such stories, the Indian remains a figure of the past, romanticized as a lost segment of US history, ignoring contemporary and actual Native peoples. Playing Indian occupies a definite subgenre of Western comics, especially during the postwar period when a host of comics featuring a “white Indian” as the hero were being published. Playing Indian migrates into superhero comics, a phenomenon that heightens and amplifies the notions of heroism, bravery, and manhood already attached to the white Indian trope. Instances of superheroes like Batman and Superman playing Indian correspond with depictions found in the strictly Western comics. The superhero as Indian returned in the twenty-first century via Captain America, attesting to the continuing power of this ideal and image.
