Wave High the Banner: A Novel of Davy Crockett

Wave High the Banner: A Novel of Davy Crockett Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Reissued for the first time since its original publication in 1943, Wave High the Banner is the little-known first novel by Dee Brown, one of the most prolific, influential, and popular writers on the American frontier experience. Brown skillfully weaves fact and fiction to recount Crockett's earliest apprenticeships and first loves, his marriage to his childhood sweetheart, his numerous moves ever deeper into the wilderness, his turbulent years as a frontier politician in Tennessee, and his part in the doomed and bloody defense of the Alamo in Texas. Brown re-creates a complex and richly textured Crockett who was a soldier, lover, husband, father, widower, Indian fighter, hunter, humorist, local politician, and champion of the common people, both white and Indian.

Historian Paul Andrew Hutton discusses the significance of Wave High the Banner in the Crockett literature and reviews the wide-ranging, distinguished career of Dee Brown.

Synopsis:

This little-known first book by Dee Brown is a classic biographical novel of frontiersman Davy Crockett.
