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.

    An American Legend in his own Words.

    This is a must read for an serious student of American history. The work shows Crockett as a very human, very American historical figure. Tennessee politics, treatment of native Americans, class struggle regarding land claims, the birth of Texas, the career of Andrew Jackson and other historical developments are made more realistic and clear to the 21st Century reader after reading this volume. The language is colorful. From the Trail of Tears to the Alamo, the book is clearly an important historical work.
