Simon Kenton: His Life & Period 1755-1836

To Risk it AllThis biography of the pioneer who stands with Daniel Boone and George Rogers Clark, originally published in 1930, was written by one of his descendants, based on old diaries, journals, notebooks, letters and accounts taken down from his contemporaries.

When Simon Kenton moved from Virginia to Kentucky in 1771, he already had a reputation as a frontier fighter and had served as a spy for George Rogers Clark. During the Revolution he helped the frontier campaigns of Anthony Wayne. Following the Revolution he actively helped in the early settlement of Kentucky and Ohio.
