Davy Crockett, by Constance Rourke
I don't have too much to say about this book. It covers what is known of Davy Crockett's life, from his birth through his death at the Alamo, and all of his journeys in between. It is peppered throughout with a number of legends about his feats, and often gives probable explanations for their sources.
I found it a pretty dry read and a struggle to get through, but the detailed illustrations were very well done.
