Editorial Reviews

Review

Like Crockett himself [Wallis] is a storyteller. The man who emerges from these pages is vivid, comprehensible, and, in the main, historically reliable. On a subject that has come to be dominated by acrimonious debate and posturing, such serenity has a lot to recommend it. "

Michael Wallis is the master frontier story teller, having chronicled everything from Billy the Kid to Highway 66. Now he s told the tale of the real David Crockett as distinguished from the mostly mythical one. Davy (with a show biz y ) Crockett did, in fact, die at The Alamo but he did not kill a bear when he was only three or wear a coonskin cap except in publicity photographs. That s just for starters. But the truth has a way of being more interesting than the made-up, most particularly when in the talented writing mind and hands of Michael Wallis. --Jim Lehrer"

Wallis examination of the man behind the myth is both well written and engrossing. "

About the Author
