King of the Wild Frontier: A Narrative of the Life of Davy Crockett by Davy Crockett.

This easy-reading autobiography established Davy Crockett as a larger-than-life American hero and introduced tall tales of the frontier to a popular audience. Written in 1834, two years before the legendary Tennessean met his fate at the Alamo, it begins during Crockett's early childhood and concludes just before his entry to the U.S. Congress.
Even in his youth, Crockett "always delighted to be in the very thickest of danger." In his own words, he paints a vivid portrait of wilderness life, recapturing its struggles and rewards. Crockett tells of his two marriages, his fights with Indians, and the start of his political career. Famous as a "bar" hunter, he was already a folk hero before this memoir's publication. Readers of all ages will thrill to his captivating tales from the vanished world of American frontier life. Reprint of A Narrative of the Life of David Crockett of the State of Tennessee, E. L. Carey and A. Hart, 1834.
