We've all heard of Davy Crockett, the King of the Wild Frontier, but serious historians have long known that the man behind the myth was more substantive. David Crockett in Congress: The Rise and Fall of the Poor Man's Friend is the first book to provide a full and accurate portrait of this American legend. With here-to-fore unpublished documents, and all the political writings of Crockett, as well as a complete collection of Crockett holographs and portraits, David Crockett in Congress is an insightful and provocative addition to the library of any American historian, Texas historian, Crockett buff, or political historian.
