Concepts from “The Autobiography of Davy Crockett”

Gutenberg.org provides a free reading of Davy Crockett’s autobiography, allowing a vast number of people to learn about the legendary figure from his own point of view. The Tennessee native is famous for his work in congress, service during the Texas Revolution, death at the Alamo, and having the thoroughly impressive though unofficial title “King of the Wild Frontier”. Many of the tales about Crockett have been embellished over time through artistic interpretations like songs and plays, making the availability of a text written by the man himself an invaluable tool in studying the life of this American folk hero.
