"With an eye like an eagle and tall as a mountain was he"

DANIEL BOONE... legendary and long on trail-blazing adventure, Dan'l kindles pioneering spirits as he leads fearless men, women, and children in the quest to settle new territory. Starring Fess Parker as one of history's most famous frontier explorers, this classic television series brings the old frontier to life, packed with Indians, renegades & scalawags, struggling pioneers, and plenty of wilderness action.

The High Cumberland is a 2-part episode from Season 2 (1965-'66) revolving around Daniel Boone's early years on the new frontier and how he met his future wife Rebecca, and friend Mingo, the Oxford-educated son of an English father and Cherokee mother. His early explorations of Kentucky, the courtship of Rebecca Bryan, and schemes by unscrupulous merchants to steal precious supplies for the Kentucky settlement are all part of this great adventure.

The High Cumberland stars Fess Parker, Patricia Blair, Ed Ames and Dallas McKennon

If you are considering buying Daniel Boone the TV series, but aren't sure about a full season, buy this DVD and view it. Then you'll be eagerly purchasing as many seasons of the series as you can find, and carefully making sure you have other separate DVD's of Daniel Boone if they aren't already included in all the season TV series sets you buy. In fact, this DVD might make you consider just about anything Fess Parker starred in. Daniel Boone was his best fit, and I'm hooked. Growing up I missed most of these because I was told chores and homework came first. Now that I'm older, I am happy to see these on DVD's and look forward to many more whenever I can afford the rest of the seasons. If you like history, don't be a stuffed shirt prig, just enjoy these for the wilderness lifestyle portrayed, and if you like westerns, you'll love the Daniel Boone TV series. This "High Cumberland" 2-part set was probably the pilot for Daniel Boone and tells how Daniel Boone met Becky. Purists will argue that you can read accurate history about Daniel Boone and discover he never wore a coon skin hat because he hated raccoons. It's just a TV show people. Like one time I commented when I was visiting my parents after I graduated high school and they were watching "Six Million Dollar Man" that it didn't look like Lee Majors was really running 40 mph when he yanked the door off of a taxi cab driving down the street. My mother made the comment, "He never does, it's just a TV show." However, I still believe Lynda Carter was the most convincing Wonder Woman. Daniel Boone has been portrayed by other actors, but nobody gets it as right as Fess Parker.

As I was watching Bend of the River (1952), the western directed by Anthony Mann, I suddenly had a profound sense of deja vu: I could predict what was going to happen. It wasn't just a case of a predictable, redundant plot line – no, the story was quite unusual and quite original. But I felt I knew this story; almost as though I had seen it before. But I knew I never had (I keep meticulous records of movies I have seen). What was it?

The mystery was partially resolved when I suddenly remembered the two-part 1966 episode of the 1964-1970 TV series, Daniel Boone, "The High Cumberland" (released theatrically abroad as Daniel Boone, Frontier Trail Rider). Here is an outline of the plots of both movies: the hero (Jimmy Stewart in Bend of the River; Fess Parker in Daniel Boone) is leading a wagon train of settlers to a new land, across the mountains; he rescues a man who is about to be hanged/killed and the man – a rougish character – joins the hero on the trail. The rogue meets the pretty woman in the wagon train who has a playful love/hate relationship with the hero and is obviously attracted to her. The wagon train is attacked by Indians and the woman is injured. The wagon train reaches a settlement where they buy supplies for the winter, which the storekeeper promises to send on in a month. The wagon train leaves; the woman stays behind to recover; the rogue stays behind, too.

A month or more goes by, and the settlers have reached their spot and settled in, but no supplies have arrived. The hero goes back with a friend to inquire. They find that their supplies are still there but have been sold to someone else for a higher price. The hero also finds the rogue is engaged to the pretty woman. The hero takes his supplies by force, aided by the rogue.
