Format: Paperback
Davy Crockett is a legend -- and Crockett knew this while he was still alive. Throughout this autobiography, he is careful to conform to his public image, while being willing to clarify some of the tall tales being told.
Some have doubted Crockett's authorship, and he certainly used fellow congressman, Thomas Chilton of Kentucky to edit and assist in the manuscript preparation. However, the book is the work of Crockett and he wrote it in 1834, two years before the Alamo.
Reading about Crockett in his own words (even though they may have been edited or enhanced by another congressman) is a delight.
Well worth one's time.

Format: Paperback
A great read: True, I may be prone to some bias, as Disney's first (and highly idealized) broadcast of "Davy Crockett: Indian Fighter" made its indelible print on me when I was several months shy of four years old. But Crockett's own story is a splendid, vivid, and revealing piece of work that belongs on the shelf of every student of its era. As a veteran reader of such material, and a much-published college and university educator, I commend the publisher of this work for its civil large-print edition (some of Bertrand Russell's best material is done in the same format) of this volume.

My children and I have thorougly enjoyed our reading aloud of "Davy Crockett: His Own Story". Written by Davy himself you feel like you are standing along side this great man of courage, determination, and heroism. We were rivoted by the honoring way this man lived his life. An awesome model for boys to emulate!

Format: Paperback
I bought this book specifically because Davy Crockett himself was the author. I thought it would contain his entire autobiography, but the book ends before he goes off to Congress. The book and type are also much larger than I realized they would be. This book is more suitable for younger children. As an adult, I am quite disappointed.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It was good, interesting, and certainly written in the style of the period. He really had a thing for bears. Pioneers were super tough in eighteenth American. Swimming those frozen rivers and shinning up a tree and sliding down just to keep from freezing tells a lot about his toughness. It left me wanting more, and ended with nothing about his travels to Texas and his experiences there. Can't fault him for not writing about the Alamo since he died there.
