His name was David Crockett. He never signed his name any other way, but popular culture transformed his memory into "Davy Crockett" and Hollywood gave him a raccoon hat he hardly ever wore. Best-selling historian Michael Wallis casts a fresh look at the frontiersman, storyteller and politician behind these legendary stories. Born into a humble Tennessee family in 1786, Crockett never "killed him a b'ar" when he was only three. But he did cut a huge swath across early-nineteenth-century America-as a bear hunter, a frontier explorer, a soldier serving under Andrew Jackson, an unlikely congressman and, finally, a martyr in his now-controversial death at the Alamo. Wallis' David Crockett is more than a riveting story. It is a revelatory, authoritative biography that separates fact from fiction, providing us with an extraordinary evocation of a true American hero and the rough-and-tumble times in which he lived.
