DAVID CROCKETT The Lion of the West

by | Read by John Pruden

Biography & Memoir • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

David Crockett didn't become a legend while hunting in Tennessee. Politics and a stint in Congress made him the stuff of plays and books. Author Michael Wallis profiles Crockett and studies the creation of his myth. John Pruden gives Wallis's book a soft-spoken reading, with just a touch of amazement. He finds a suitably folksy voice for Crockett's own words, which come from the legend's autobiography and other sources. Book tours and stump speeches may not be as exciting as hunting bear, but they do show how reality gave way to legend in America's early years. Wallis makes this look at American politics and culture an entertaining listen. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2011]
