Daniel Boone/Danny Russel 

Jul 29 (Sat) at 10:00 am 4:00 pm

The Dubois County Museum at 2704 N. Newton Street in Jasper, welcomes on Saturday, July 29, at 10:30 a.m., our finest frontiersman, Daniel Boone, in the person of Danny Russel, for a dynamic portrayal of this complex character of a man.  Russel had spent considerable time researching and compiling his show during visits to Pennsylvania, Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee, Kentucky, Indiana and Missouri to learn where and how Boone lived, hunted, fought and dreamed of the next frontier.  Boone’s remarkable achievements and his crucial role in Westward Expansion were detailed in a 1784 published work by John Filson. The book depicts Boone as a natural leader, a survivor of ambushes, captures and desperate defenses, leaving behind lands he had discovered, protected, settled and improved.  Russel will guide listeners through tales of this legendary pioneer and pathfinder, master hunter, woodsman, wilderness scout, expert marksman and gunsmith, statesman and Revolutionary War hero.  Russel will bring Daniel Boone to life with his portrayal and stories.
