Publisher's Summary

Two quotes define American hero Davy Crockett: "First make sure you're right, then go ahead." And "You can go to hell; I'm going to Texas."

Davy Crockett was born on a mountaintop in Tennessee (1786). He was a rugged frontiersman who befriended the Indians and helped keep the peace between them and the settlers. He was elected to Congress and, after losing a reelection bid, died a courageous death at The Alamo (1836). He was, and continues to be, a legendary American hero. This is his story in his own words.

Great story! Only a few issues...

The narrator could have been better, his voice was a bit boring? The story was great to! I highly recommend this book as a great read for any student looking to know more about it history and Davy Crockett.

Great story ruined by narrator

I couldn't finish this recording. The narrator drove me crazy. It was as if he forgot the beginning of each sentence by the time he gets to the end.
I wish I could get my credit back to download a different recording of the same book.

Awkward Reader

The book is read by a robot (a poor representation of a reader at least!) This is very difficult to listen to and understand. It is a shame.. it is such a cool story to read.
