David Crockett

His Life and Adventures

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


It Opens to the reader scenes in the lives of the lowly, and a state of semi-civilization, of which but few of them can have the faintest idea. It has not been my object, in this narrative, to defend Colonel Crockett or to condemn him, but to present his.

Customer Reviews

david crockett

Nice read about life in early 18 century in general and in southern states, indian creek and horse riding chamochie tribes and of laws passed by congress such as the indian removal act, and of any american building a cabin and growing corn gets awarded 44 acres of land around the cabin etc. Other than that it appears to be pretty wild and filthy lifestyle in general, compared to new england at the time, and crockett seemed to me quite careless i.e after exiting congress, abandoning his family, and fighting wars that were probably not his to fight, abandoning friends on his way to texas and unwanted war that eventually took his life.

Great history

A real feel for the times

David Crockett

The very best biography of David Crockett I've ever read. It was written as to be contemporaneous with the time before he left for Texas.
