9781520035321: Crockett of Tennessee

From humble beginnings in rural Tennessee to his heroic death defending the Alamo, frontiersman, adventurer, and politician David “Davy” Crockett embodies the spirit and ideals of the national character. Even during his lifetime, tales of the sharpshooting, skilled woodsman were―to his delight―told, retold, and elaborated on. As a US congressman, the former Creek War militiaman steadfastly opposed President Andrew Jackson’s Indian Removal Act. As a soldier, he made the ultimate sacrifice fighting for an independent Texas. Nearly two centuries after his untimely demise, he remains a legendary figure in American lore. In this fictional account of Crockett’s life, author Cameron Judd offers a nuanced portrait of the man behind the myth.

About the Author:

Judd is a two-time recipient of the Malcolm Law Memorial Award for Investigative Reporting given each year by the Tennessee Associated Press Managing Editors organization. In 1989 he received that award jointly with Greeneville Sun Editor John M. Jones Jr., and in 1990 received the award individually. Since 1980, Judd has written more than 30 novels published across the United States and Canada, with more than two million copies of his novels going into print.

From Booklist:

Davy, Davy Crockett, king of the wild frontier. That snippet of song and the Disney television show for which it was the theme have become David Crockett's most enduring legacies. Judd, a prolific and very popular author of paperback westerns, sets out to change all that with this carefully researched historical novel offering a much less mythological profile of the remarkable Tennessean. Judd begins with Crockett as a young boy searching for his runaway dog. Soon it's David himselfa 14-year-old on a cattle drive to Virginiawho feels the wanderlust. Then come the adventures for which he became famous as an explorer, soldier, and Indian fighter. Judd also explores Crockett's political career, with emphasis on what his outspoken opposition to Andrew Jackson ultimately cost him, and, of course, he writes in great detail of Crockett's heroic demise as a volunteer at the Alamo; more interestingly, though, Judd explains how Crockett came to be there and what his plans were had he survived. Though the narrative flow in this very long novel occasionally gets bogged down in the abundance of historical detail, it is a heartfelt attempt to glimpse the soul of an American hero. By any standard, Judd succeeds. An afterword explains where Judd has fictionalized the storymainly in the creation of Crockett's pal, the rogue and scoundrel Persius Tarr. Wes Lukowsky
