Retail Price: $19.95

Follow the story of Col. John Holder, one of the heroic defenders of Boonesborough, and commander of the fort after Daniel Boone left Kentucky, in this detailed new book by author Harry Enoch.

The self-taught Holder established himself as a man of property, acquiring well over 100,000 acres of Kentucky land. He was also commercial-industrial innovator in farsighted business enterprises, which resulted in Lower Howard’s Creek becoming one of the first industrial areas of Kentucky. Much of this area is now enclosed in the Lower Howard’s Creek Nature and Heritage Preserve.

“Meticulously documented and well-written, this book is a pleasurable read that educates as it entertains.”
