Love Makes a Home: The Life of Rebecca Boone
This year marks the 250th anniversary of Daniel Boone's first trek through the Cumberland Gap! In Rebecca Boone: Love Makes a Home, the wife of Daniel Boone shares homespun wisdom and meaningful memories as she chops wood, cooks stew, and does her mending on a winter evening in 1811. The play features a dozen tunes of the time played by William Ritter, with Terra Currie as Rebecca Boone. Daniel and Rebecca met and married in the Yadkin Valley.

The trail-blazing midwife didnt get the luxury of a home she could keep, but her adventures made up for what went missing. She walked through Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee, West Virginia, and Kentucky before she found her final rest in Missouri. She raised ten biological children and six born to other mothers. As she weaves linen, she recalls how her husband, legendary American frontiersman Daniel Boone, spent as many as two years at a time in the woods.

She had little bitterness and no guile. Blessed with a supportive family and an indomitable spirit, Rebecca revels in an evening alone as she recalls her most intriguing secrets.
