Davy Crockett: The Legend of the Wild Frontier

Front Cover
The Rosen Publishing Group, Inc, Dec 15, 2002 - Juvenile Nonfiction - 112 pages
The famous coonskin politician was always more than the self-promoted backwoods Everyman. An astute and agile leader, Crockett would come of age during the Creek Wars, and die a hero at the battle of the Alamo in Texas. Today we can distinguish between the legend and the history of Davy Crockett, as we survey the facts of his life and the fantasies of more than a century of stories told in songs, films, and books.
