About the Book
From the French and Indian War to the Civil War, well over a hundred years of American history is reflected through the lives of six bold and famous men: Daniel Boone, Davy Crockett, Jim Bowie, Sam Houston, Jim Bridger, and Kit Carson. Here is a book that details their lives, their legends, and the many films and television shows their stories inspired.
A biography of each frontiersman is followed by a detailed examination of films and television shows featuring that man as a character. Discussion of films includes cast and credit listings, synopses, and notes on the production, including comments on accuracy and interpretation. Television coverage includes listings of episode titles and discussion of each series’ history.
The book is illustrated with both film stills and artwork of the frontiersmen. An appendix of documentaries and a bibliography are included.
