Overview

From the 1700s to the 1800s, over a hundred years of American history is reflected through the lives of six bold and famous men: Daniel Boone, Davy Crockett, Jim Bowie, Sam Houston, Jim Bridger, and Kit Carson. This book details their lives, their legends, and the many films and television shows their stories inspired.

A biography of each frontiersman in followed by a detailed examination of films and television shows featuring that man as a character. The discussion of the films includes cast and credit listings, synopses, and notes on the production, including comments on the accuracy and the interpretation. Television coverage includes listings of episode titles and commentary on each series' history.

The book is illustrated with both film stills and illustrations of the frontiersmen. An appendix of documentaries, a bibliography and an index are included.
