By the mid-eighteenth century, Colonial America wanted to expand beyond the Allegheny mountain range. One of the few possible passages to the west was the Cumberland gap, a buffalo trace that led into a dangerous and vast wilderness know as "Kanta-ke." One man would change all that...his name was Daniel Boone. This is the story of how that famous frontiersman became the American Moses and initiated the westward migration into the "Dark and Bloody Ground"--a movement that would continue for more than another century. Authentically and beautifully filmed on remote locations, award-winning Native Sun Productions recaptures the self-reliant spirit of a desperate frontier people who chose to risk everything so they could live a free life in the wilderness beyond the mountains.
