Two quotes define American hero Davy Crockett: First make sure you're right, then go ahead. And You can go to hell; I'm going to Texas.

Davy Crockett was born on a mountaintop in Tennessee (1786). He was a rugged frontiersman who befriended the Indians and helped keep the peace between them and the settlers. He was elected to Congress and, after losing a reelection bid, died a courageous death at The Alamo (1836). He was, and continues to be, a legendary American hero. This is his story in his own words.

    " The stories are interesting, but I like it more for the style it's written in; as if familiar with the reader and full of facinating colloquialisms. "

    " Climbed up and slide down a tree over 100 times in one night to stay warm during a winter night. He bested me by two. I'll get you! "

    " His account of childhood is fascinating. The book becomes more violent and less interesting as it drags on. Be sure to read ahead and know what you're getting into if you read this to a child. "

    " This book was great until it got to Davy Crockett campaigning. Then it went downhill fast. It was an engaging narrative that really showed the public character of Davy Crockett, however, the part about trapping beavers and killing bears was unbearably long (no pun intended). "

    " Parts of this are funny. Parts seem to drag. Considering dumping it. But I will plug on for now. The preface says it's questionable as to whether this is truely a primary source. I don't really care. I just wanted to know more about Davy. "

    " A one-man bear genocide: Davy Crockett. "

    " Cool to read, but kind of boring. The movies about him are much more entertaining! "

    " It was an easy read and interesting historical facts, however his wartime chapters and bear hunting chapters become long and drawn out. Overall I am glad I read it; I have a different view of Davy Crockett. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eddy Allen | 3/30/2006

    " A Narrative of the Life of David Crockett of the State of Tennessee. Written in 1834, this autobiography is like a tall tale of the life of a frontiersman, and established Davy Crockett as a larger-than-life American hero. "
