Daniel Boone and the Opening of the American West takes you back in time to the battleground that was the Kentucky frontier. It traces the life of Daniel Boone from his birth near Reading, Pennsylvania in 1734, through his years in Kentucky and to his death in St. Charles County, Missouri in 1820. Against the backdrop of the American Revolution, Daniel Boone explores an ordinary man living in extraordinary times who was destined to settle and defend the beautiful, but often fiercely unforgiving, wilderness of Kentucky that became known as "the dark and bloody ground." A vast number of Boone documents, portraiture and imagery are shown in this extraordinary documentary series, along with thrilling action scenes filmed at over thirty locations known to Boone in Pennsylvania, Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee, Kentucky and Missouri – just as Boone would have seen them.

The Frontiersman begins with Boone's first attempt to settle Kentucky, a venture that ends in tragedy when his oldest son, James, along with others, is killed by a band of Shawnee in the fall of 1773. It follows Boone's fortunes with the Transylvania Company as it purchases from the Cherokees at Sycamore Shoals of all the lands of central Kentucky and proceeds to Boone leading a band of axmen to open a trace from Cumberland Gap to the south bank of the Kentucky River and as they erect Fort Boonesborough in April 1775. This program ends with the outbreak of the Revolutionary War and the alliances of the Native American tribes north of the Ohio River, particularly the Shawnee, with the British.
