David Crockett the lion of the West

by Michael Wallis

Popular culture transformed his memory into "Davy Crockett," and Hollywood gave him a raccoon hat he hardly ever wore, but in this bestseller, historian Michael Wallis casts 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 book 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. Steeped in legend, shrouded in folklore, the real David Crockett finally emerges in this engrossing and entertaining work.
