        David "Davy" Crockett (1786-1836) was born in Tennessee, fought alongside Andrew Jackson in the War of 1812, and later served three terms in the House of Representatives before heading to Texas, where he died defending the Alamo. Col. Crockett's Exploits and Adventures in Texas, first published after Crockett's death and disingenuously attributed to him, was written by Richard Penn Smith as a narrative that promoted a sanitized account of the Alamo as a heroic effort by Americans to stem the Mexican "invasion" of Texas. The story, which was a huge success in its day, created a myth of the battle that pervaded the collective American memory for more than 150 years and reinforced the image of Davy Crockett as the "King of the Frontier."

                        Originally published in 1834, this autobiography was actucally written by Davy Crocket himself. And so, the flavor of the times and the place come through. It's more like a tall tale of the life of the frontiersman than it is a true autobiography, but that just adds to the book's fun. When it first came out, this book went a long way toward establishing Davy Crockett as a larger-than-life American hero.
