“Whether read as a political tract, as American humor, as autobiography, or as a chapter in American history, the work is . . . ‘a classic.'”
—Georgia Historical Quarterly. 232 pages, Tennesseana Edition,

“Davy Crockett buffs, Tennessee bibliophiles, genealogists, folklorists, historians, and the general reader should find this carefully researched and authoritative edition, which extricates the man from the myth, a valuable addition to the frontier history, biography, and literature of Tennessee and America.”
—Robert E. Dalton, Tennessee Historical Quarterly.

“This book . . . will go a long way toward separating the myths that grew up around Crockett and the actual facts. This will enable the reader to acquire a greater appreciation for this long-neglected Tennessean.”
—Sarah McMahon, Historical Review and Antique Digest.
