Overview

David Crockett-frontier humorist and teller of tall tales, politician, Indian fighter, rough-and-ready hero-comes to life in what is usually known as his "Autobiography." Surrounded by such a mass of folklore, Crockett became completely entangled in myth. The modern reader will therefore welcome this facsimile edition of his original Narrative accompanied by explanatory notes, background material, and corrections of errors in fact.

This volume resulted from the doctoral research of the late James A. Shackford and the lifelong scholarly interests of the late Stanley J. Folmsbee, professor of history at The University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
