Defiance! : a Saga of David Crockett and the Alamo :Third Edition
"In 1835, David Crockett's political career crumbled and he left Tennessee in search of a new homestead in Texas. But signs of war with Mexico brought him to San Antonio de Bexar, where he died in a defiant determination to live up to his legend. This singular gesture outstripped everything his bureaucratic promoters did to extend his reputation for fearlessness and integrity, leaving the final and most decisive act of legend entirely his own." This work takes you from his ancestral beginnings to his birth and early adventures; to the Creek War; to his sadness and Congress - all the way to the Alamo, and beyond...It also answers an interesting question: When did "Davy" start calling himself David Illustrated with period paintings, maps and photographs.
