DAVY CROCKETT: MY OWN STORY

by | Read by Jonathan Reese

Biography & Memoir • 4 hrs • Unabridged • ©

Few Americans have been more successful than Davy Crockett at creating their own mythology though much of this book's interest is found in the tension between the hyperbole of the author and the manufactured accounts produced by Disney and others. Reader Jonathan Reese handles this tension skillfully. He uses dialect when variant spellings indicate but otherwise has less of a mountain accent than, say, storyteller Donald Davis. His resonant voice and steady pace make the hunting tales, which comprise much of the book, almost interesting and the humor, both intentional and unintentional, amusing.
