How Daniel Boone found his wife – American Folktale

Late in the middle of the night, Daniel Boone and one of his friends were out hunting deer in a way that was used by many hunters during that time, which was called fire hunting. The way to fire hunt is that the hunter would catch a pan of pine knots of fire in a pan and carry it through the woods. The light from the fire would reflect in the eyes of the deer. This would confuse the deer and the hunter was able to shoot it.

When Daniel and his friend came close to a creek bed somewhere in North Carolina, Daniel noticed blue eyes shining out of the darkness. Daniel climbed down from his horse, aimed his rifle, but found he was unable to shoot. He had never seen a blue-eyed deer. He heard the rustling as the deer escaped. Daniel headed after the deer, over a fence and out into a meadow. The moonlight showed that the deer he was in fact chasing was a young woman. He followed the young woman all the way to her house where he met her father, which happened to be a close neighbor.

As the man of the house welcomed Daniel into their home, a younger boy and girl rushed in to tell their father about the adventure of their older sister. She walked into the room, still glowing from her near death encounter with the moonlight shining on her golden hair.

Daniel at once fell in love and began to court Rebecca. He never gave up until she agreed to become his bride.
