A Narrative of the Life of David Crockett ...
Davy Crockett, in his own inimitable style, describes his earliest days in Tennessee, his two marriages, his career as an Indian fighter, his bear hunts and his electioneering. His reputation for hunting bears (he killed 105 in one season), killing Indians, drinking whiskey and riding rapids led to him become known as the "King of the Wild Frontier." In 1834, when his autobiography appeared, Davy Crockett was already a folk hero with an eye on the White House. But a year later he would lose his seat in Congress and turn toward Texas and, ultimately, the Alamo.
