    1 thought on “David Crockett: His Life and Adventures

    1. Most men are remembered by how they died rather than how they lived This quote by David Crockett serves, in my opinion, as the best way to describe this national folk hero that has grown over the years bigger than life He was born in poverty and didn t lead a particularly remarkable childhood for that time in American history That doesn t, however, mean that it isn t interesting 220 years later Even when this book was first published in 1874 the country that he called home had changed drasticall [...]

    2. OooI remember this book This was one of Abbott s best biographies, written late in his career 1870s Our library had a bunch of his books, and I read as many as I could find of them His early books tended to indulge in legend building the Great Hero of Great Character, but then he started writing about such people as Napoleon and Captain Kidd I think he decided to become less of a minister and of a historian at that point In any event, this bio is one of his readable and interesting I m not sur [...]

    3. Simultaneously beautiful, appalling, and tragic This book was so well written, I didn t want to put it down Abbott makes you pity a young Crockett, despise him as a young man, and then celebrate him in his hunting triumphs and travel adventures leading up to his death.

    4. David Crockett His Life and Adventures is one of the series of biographies,American Pioneers and Patriots, that were written by various historians in the late 19th and early 20th centuries John S C Abbott, who was a well known pastor and historian, wrote David Crockett, Daniel Boone, and a number of additional titles in this series Abbott, whose life spanned the period between the Louisiana Purchase and the end of Reconstruction, was also known for his theological writings His classical educatio [...]

    5. I found this book very entertaining Of course because of the funny stories that Crockett was famous for, but because of the fascinating examples of how life has changed in the intervening 200 years I think I might add the actual autobiography to my reading list, and I recall hearing about a legend that Crockett survived the Alamo and secretly started a new life in mexico I think that was Crockett After reading this book I would not be surprised AnywayI was reading it with a children s library i [...]

    6. I grew up a fan of Walt Disney s Davy Crocket movies and I read Davy Crockett His Own Story in college to compare the history with the legend I would have stopped at the autobio if it weren t for Kindle offering all of these older and harder to find titles It s a straightforward telling of Davy s life story and I think of an inspiration to the Disney film that Crockett s own work And that surprised me in a pleasant way Written in the late 1800s, this book deals with Davy the legend after the fi [...]

    7. I loved Davy Crockett when I was a kid I did a book report on him in 6th grade in which I dressed up like him and acted out a part of the book for my classmates But the years haven t been easy on my memories of him because I don t remember anything other than he loved to hunt and he wore animal skin pants, shirts, hats and shoes This book was great fun to reintroduce me to dear old Davy He lived a very interesting and wonderful life The only thing I didn t enjoy about this book was how little hi [...]

    8. Writtten in 1874, this book gives an account of the life of David Crockett, frontiersman, soldier, hunter, and Congressman, who was killed at the Alamo in 1836 As this book was written only 38 years after Colonel Crockett s death, I thought this would be interesting and indeed it was, using quotes from his autobiography Some time in the future, I would like to read a modern version and compare them.

    9. I found it very interesting to read and imagine what life was really like at that time Refreshing to read of his attitude of being comfortable with who he was, of believing all men to be equal, appreciating nature, and to have integrity in all matters I knew how the story would end, but I still got teary eyed.

    10. My desire to read and my inclination towers the subject surpassed the quality of the writing and the author s ability to present the material Upon saying this,I did enjoy the book and feel my time was well spent although I will continue to pursue other avenues on this subject.

    11. Much of the material was familiar, from watching Disney s Davy Crockett on TV in my childhood Other parts, I was just shaking my head wondering how much was true and how much was Tennessee exaggeration.

    12. Maybe he was a good person but leaving his wife and children alone and unprotected multiple times Hmmmm

    13. A great story about a great man, read while we camped and geocached through Tennessee Davy Crockett, King of the Wild Frontier WooHoo That dates me.

    14. I really enjoyed this book Story of a legend I found it to be a very readable account of his life, and ultimately, his death at the Alamo.
