Boone Blacksmithing
Don Plummer

The Boone Blacksmithing Legacy
One of the most fascinating legacies in American history is that of the Boone family that gave us that famous pioneer, Daniel Boone. This book tells the story and history of the Boone blacksmiths - beginning centuries ago, including Daniel Boone VII, and continuing with his sons Tom and Mike. Daniel Boone, the seventh, likes to say he walks in the footsteps of giants. And indeed he does. 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.
