This is Daniel Boone.
Supposedly he's my great, great, great, great, great
grandfather on my dad's side.
Anyway, it's what I've grown up believing.

James Fenimore Cooper was inspired by Boone, and Edgar Rice Burroughs was inspired by Cooper, so the father of Hawkeye is also the grandfather of Tarzan.

For all I know, he never wore a coonskin cap in his life.
That's all right. Around these parts, the frontier spirit's still going strong.
