Davy Crockett was a child of the frontier, where violence and danger were everywhere. A hunter, soldier, and backwoods politician, he helped settle large swaths of the still-growing United States. In the process, he became an American legend, with his life and exploits dramatized—and often fictionalized—in film and TV. Renowned author George Edward Stanley tells the true story: his difficult childhood; his time in the militia fighting the Indians and the British; his decision to become a Justice of the Peace and eventually run for the Tennessee State Legislature; and his final stand, and death, at the famous battle of the Alamo.
