   One of North Carolina’s best know outdoor dramas, Horn in the West, is a recreation of North Carolina’s early pioneers, including Daniel Boone and their struggle for independence from Britain. The production takes place in pre-revolutionary days and lasts two hours. Horn in the West first premiered in 1952. The Horn of the West was written by Kermit Hunter, the author of the original version of Unto These Hills, and is one of the longest running outdoor dramas in the country.
