Review: David Crockett: The Lion of the West

User Review  - Travis - Goodreads

Does a nice job of scraping away the 'Legend of Davy Crockett' and showing there was a pretty interesting guy underneath anyway. Yeah, he was deeply flawed and his own worst enemy in many ways, but ... Read full review

User Review  - Dennis - Goodreads

Because of Walt Disney, a whole generation of men have a fascination with Davy Crockett, a very minor historical figure, but a major figure of American mythology. This biograpy adds very little to our ... Read full review

User Review  - Rachael Booth - Goodreads
