The History Maker Bios series offers introductions to the lives of historical figures found in the core of every history curriculum. Filled with true stories, historical photographs, artwork, and caricatures, each title in this lively series will entertain and inform readers. Although movies and television shows show Davy Crockett wearing his famed coonskin hat, he never wore one. He wore a broad-brimmed felt hat. His success with a rifle not only helped to feed his family, it led to a life filled with adventure, fighting, and politics. A man of action, honor, and courage. Crockett was a tall tale come to life. Although he made up many of the tales about his life, in the end he lived up to the legend he had created.
