"The Boone Blacksmithing Legacy" Book
By Don Plummer, Edited by Judy Bloone
One of the most fascinating legacies in American history is that of the famous pioneer, Daniel Boone and the entire Boone family. Daniel Boone, the seventh, likes to say he walks in the footsteps of giants. And indeed he does. This book tells the story and history of the Boone blacksmiths - beginning centuries ago, continuing with Daniel Boone VII, and his sons Tom and Mike Smyth Boone. In addition to the insightful history and detailed photos, included here are instructions on Making Dragons as done by Daniel Boone VII and a photo gallery of some of Dan's other work. Tom Boone gives detailed instructions on how to make a fireplace set; and Mike Smyth Boone offers us insight on finding and sharing inspiration through blacksmithing and ironwork.
