Signed by author on title page without inscription. First edition with full number line.Combining the stories of the real hero and his Disney enhanced afterlife, Born on a Mountaintop delves deep into our love for an American icon. Pioneer. Congressman. Martyr of the Alamo. King of the Wild Frontier. As with all great legends, Davy Crockett's has been retold many times. Over the years, he has been repeatedly reinvented by historians and popular storytellers. In fact, one could argue that there are three distinct Crocketts: the real David as he was before he became famous; the celebrity politician whose backwoods image Crockett himself created, then lost control of; and the mythic Davy we know today.
