Cunning like the fox, mighty like the grizzly, Davy Crockett lived for adventure. With a faithful friend at his side and a trusty long rifle in his hand, the fearless frontiersman set out for the Great Lakes territories. But the region surrounding the majestic inland seas was full of Indians both peaceful and bloodthirsty. And when the brave pioneer saved a Chippewa maiden from warriors of a rival tribe, his travels became a deadly struggle to save his scalp. If Crockett couldn’t defeat his fierce foes, the only remains he would leave behind would be his legend and his coonskin cap.
