David Crockett: The Lion of the West

Paperback (W. W. Norton & Company April 23, 2012) , 1 edition

"Vivid, Comprehensible . . . cuts through decades of mythmaking." ―Texas Monthly

Popular culture transformed his memory into “Davy Crockett,” and Hollywood gave him a raccoon hat he hardly ever wore. In this surprising New York Times bestseller, historian Michael Wallis has cast a fresh look at the flesh-and-blood man behind one of the most celebrated figures in American history. More than a riveting story, Wallis’s David Crockett is a revelatory, authoritative biography that separates fact from fiction and provides us with an extraordinary evocation of not only a true American hero but also the rough-and-tumble times in which he lived. 16 pages of illustrations
