Chanticleer of Wilderness Road: A Story of Davy Crockett
This tale remains as fresh and satisfying as when it was first published by Knopf in 1951. Crockett was as fun-loving and restless as he was courageous and honest, a folk-symbol of the early American spirit, standing firm against both harsh Nature and corrupt politics. Here he marches up the Wilderness Road straight to Congress and later stands defiant to the last hour at the Alamo.
Meridel Le Sueur (1900-1996) was a storyteller, poet, and activist who lived in Hudson, Wisconsin.
