My parent’s generation forever conflated the two icons of the American frontier in no small part because Fess Parker played both in their respective television series. I know more about Crockett than Boone primarily because he still plays a role in East Tennessee folklore. I think I read a biography of Daniel Boone in elementary school.
I came across the image above randomly on Facebook, and I thought you all might have some fun with it. I am not sure which character Fess is playing in this one.
It is a shame that a gun and knife-toting hero is no longer a popular culture archetype. To say nothing of a white cis-male protagonist. His appropriation of native dress is also a micro-aggression. Where is my safe space?
