Description
							From humble beginnings in rural Tennessee to his heroic death defending the  Alamo, frontiersman, adventurer, and politician David “Davy” Crockett embodies  the spirit and ideals of the national character. Even during his lifetime,  tales of the sharpshooting, skilled woodsman were—to his delight—told, retold,  and elaborated on. As a US congressman, the former Creek War militiaman  steadfastly opposed President Andrew Jackson’s Indian Removal Act. As a  soldier, he made the ultimate sacrifice fighting for an independent Texas.  Nearly two centuries after his untimely demise, he remains a legendary figure  in American lore. In this fictional account of Crockett’s life, author Cameron  Judd offers a nuanced portrait of the man behind the myth.
