Resumen:

All True Not A Lie In It : Debut novelist Alix Hawley presents Daniel Boone's life as you've never imagined him - from his childhood in a Quaker colony through two stints captured by Indians as he attempted to settle Kentucky at the time of the American Revolutionary War.

Boone was a fabulous hunter and explorer, often called a "white Indian," who perhaps found his truest self as the captive, adopted son of a chief who was trying to prevent the white incursion into Kentucky in which Boone was a key figure.

The love story between Boone and his wife, Rebecca, is rich and tangled, but mostly it's Boone who fascinates, compelled to push into places where he imagines he can create a new "clean" world, only to spark death and trouble and complication.

Hawley's storytelling is taut and expert, her descriptions rich and powerful, and her prose full of feeling. But it is her uncanny inhabiting of Boone, a character unrivaled in North American literature, that drives this outstanding debut.
