    This frontier hero is supposed to be Daniel Boone and represents a common misconception of Boone's appearance. Daniel Boone's image in pop culture largely came from the Daniel Boone TV series (1964-70) that described Boone as a "big man" in a "coonskin cap," neither of which is true of the real Daniel Boone. Actor Fess Parker had played Davy Crockett in an earlier TV series, and it was believed he was basically reprising that role in the Daniel Boone series, thus reshaping Boone's modern image.
