00:20 -- Welcome and Announcements about Western Trailblazers
2:12 -- Paul has a review of Thunder in the East -- First in the First Frontier series by Mike Roark
5:30 -- Rich talks about Charlton Comics' Wild Frontier, a 7-issue anthology series that ran from 1955-1957 with art by Dick Giordano, and six Daniel Boone comics at ComicBookPlus.com.
8:22 -- And don't forget about DC Comics' Tomahawk which ran for 150 issues.
10:54 -- Look out! Here come the cattle!!! It's time for the trailblazers -- Daniel Boone, Kit Carson, Davy Crocket, and...
11:30 -- James Fenimore Cooper's fictional Natty Bumppo in the Leatherstocking Tales.
12:57 -- Last of the Mohicans adaptations into film in 1920, 1932, 1936 (with...Randolph Scott!), and 1947, then a television series in 1957 and another series from 1994, a 1971 5-hour BBC Masterpiece Theatre miniseries, and 1977 made-for-television movie, and finally the 1992 movie staring Daniel Day Lewis (and yes! this one occasion where the movie adaptation is better than the book). And a 2014 story tie-in The Pride of the Mohicans
18:58 -- Daniel Boone! (Not Davy Crockett) and Fess Parker played them both. (What was that all about?) The Daniel Boone mythology is an 18th century version of Taken. He blazed trails in Pennsylvania, Florida, Kentucky, and Missouri.
22:17 -- There are some new books about Daniel Boone. My Father Daniel Boone is a non-fiction take on DB, but the Daniel Boone mythology is a mix of fact and fiction.
24:04 -- Blood and Treasure set in the mid-18th century places Daniel Boone in the middle of the action.
25:20 -- Finding Daniel Boone by Ted Franklin Belue ponders the question...where are Daniel Boone's bones anyway?

27:24 -- Daniel Boone's story first appeared on the big screen in 1907, then in 1923, and 1926, with the first Daniel Boone talkie appearing in 1936, 1941, a DB serial in 1943, and 1956's Daniel Boone Trailblazer.
29:00 -- There were four Walt Disney forgettable Daniel Boone episodes, but 1964's NBC series with Fess Parker defined the Daniel Boone character in the American mindset.
32:57 -- There goes the chuckwagon triangle! And it's time for Shoot-Outs and Shout-Outs.
