Davy Crockett - Rourke, Constance, and Lofaro, Michael A, Dr. (Introduction by)

Blending myth and reality, Constance Rourke aimed to get at the heart of Davy Crockett, whose hold on the American imagination was firm even before he died at the Alamo. Published in 1934, her work pioneered in showing the backwoodsman's transformation into a folk hero. It remains a basic in the Crockett literature.
