"It were the eleventh year of my young life when I embarked on a journey, into the wilds of Tennessee and onto the cobbled streets of Baltimore, that changed my course in ways I could not comprehend back then.
In telling the story I will endeavor to address you in my plain manner, as I never posessed the many flowers of learning cultivated by those born into better circumstances, and lay before you a narrative of the trying and adventurous and somewhat humorous situations I faced during that time, and the most colorful aquaintances that all together made me become sort of a little man by the time I turned twelve. I recount it all here in the hopes of giving you an honest chance to know the person living as myself as a young lad, at the time feeling I stood no chance at becoming great in any other way than by accident and maybe, if I done my job right, I will have provided you some entertainment along the way.
It were long gone from now, yet when I turn my memory back on it, it seems as but the work of yesterday.
Davy Crockett

Travel back to early America with Davy Crockett at the helm. See the seeds of his spirited, affable good nature sprout during the eleventh year of his life, as well as his great faith and abounding love of country.
It is a classic tale for all ages that starts out on a flat bottomed riverboat in the wilds of Tennessee and ends on the cobbled streets of Baltimore circa 1796 as told by the voice of Davy Crockett himself.
Many books have been written about the events of his life. This is the rare book that allows you to get to know the true nature of one of our most beloved heroes.
"Just read for yourself, and my ears for a heel tap, if before you get through you don't say through a good-natured smile and hearty laugh, I've met the very thing itself-Davy Crockett."
