Synopsis

Davy Crockett Frontier Legend by George Edward Stanley

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 dramatised - and often fictionalised - 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.
