This title is suitable for children of ages 9 to 12 years. From his humble beginnings in east Tennessee to his valiant stand at the Alamo, this biography introduces middle readers to the real person behind the larger-than-life image of David Crockett. The narrative skilfully separates fact from fiction as readers learn that Crockett did not really wear a coonskin cap and that he was never known as 'Davy' Crockett. Young readers will appreciate the information on Crockett's turbulent and adventurous early years, such as when he ran away from home as a child and did not return until his 16th birthday. Much more than a rough-and-tumble frontiersman, David Crockett was also a successful businessman, a U.S. congressman, and a freedom fighter whose many accomplishments are detailed in this fascinating biography of this iconic American folk hero. Web links for teacher activity resources are also included in this title.
