Editorial Reviews

Review

"James R. Boylston and Allen Wiener have done a masterful job of recovering the real David Crockett, a figure of enormous historical significance in the tumultuous and critical Jacksonian age." - Jon Meacham, Pulitzer Prize winning author of American Lion: Andrew Jackson in the White House.

"The best thing on Crockett since William C. Davis's Three Roads to the Alamo. This book should have long life." -- Allen Barra, author of Inventing Wyatt Earp.

"A true gem, essential for anyone interested in Crockett himself, the Jacksonian milieu, the roots of modern democratic practice."  —Daniel Feller, author, The Jacksonian Promise: America, 1815-1840


"A thorough and magnificently researched study of the political career of David Crockett . . . a clear, introspective analysis."  —Gregg Dimmick, MD, author, Sea of Mud


"A highly readable work that sifts the nuggets of truth from the mud of speculation . . . Intensely researched and footnoted."  —Gary Zaboly, author, A True Ranger: The Life and Many Wars of Major Robert Rogers; illustrator, Texian Illiad and Blood of Noble Men



"A splendid book which reveals the true David Crockett."  —Stuart Reid, author, The Secret War for Texas
