Summary "Who was Davy Crockett? He claimed he was half-horse, half-alligator, and a little touched with snapping turtle. He could wade the Mississippi, leap the Ohio, and ride on a streak of lightning. He could whip his weight in wildcats. He could run faster, jump higher, dive deeper, stay under longer, and come up drier than any man in the whole world. Davy had a grin powerful enough to bring critters to their knees. His funny, homespun style convinced voters to send him to the U.S. Congress three times. He was "King of the Wild Frontier," "Lion of the West," a backwoods hunter who once killed 105 bears in one season. He saved the world by twisting the tail off Halley's Comet. He fought with Andrew Jackson in the Creek Indian Wars. He died fighting, swinging his rifle like a club, on the walls at the Alamo. So, what's fact and what's fiction? This book separates the truth from the tall tales and reveals the two David Crocketts--one a myth, the other a real man. Both were remarkable people, lives worth remembering, and celebrating."--Provided by publisher.
