Separating truth from tall tales, this easy-to-read biography details the life of a great American frontiersman.
Legends say Davy Crockett weighed two hundred pounds when he was born, and leapt right out of his cradle ready to fight. Though those stories are an exaggeration, Crockett's life was anything but boring. Farmer, soldier, sharp-shooter and politician, he was a well-known figure in the early 1800s-and even after his death, his reputation as an American folk hero grew and grew.
In this illustrated biography, David Adler retells the true story of David Crockett's life-from his birth in Tennessee to his death at the Alamo. Using contemporary primary sources, Adler distinguishes between fact and legend, providing details about Crockett's family life and political career, as well as a note about the historical origins of many of the famed tall tales. A timeline of important dates is included. 32 pages, softcover. Grades: PreK-2.
