This book is a total forgery!
Supposedly Crockett’s journal taken at the Alamo by Mexican General Castrillón and then recovered at the Battle of San Jacinto, but in fact written by Richard Penn Smith and Charles T. Beale. The work has been called "ingenious pseudo-autobiography."
• Howes, US-IANA, S654. Howes attributes the work to Richard Penn Smith and calls it "ingenious pseudo-autobiography."
