The Nashville Imprints |
by Crutchfield, Jim.
No Publisher Information Available
Description: These seven rare Nashville imprints are classic examples of 195th century “comic books.” Supposedly written by Davy Crockett before going to Texas. These almanacs are entertaining, but, more importantly, they paint a graphic picture of the raucous American frontier. Each one is a picture of democracy as it existed along the frontier; of outrageous bold talks, of wit of the woods; of stories told in the manner of a born narrator, and of feats requiring super-human effort. 144 pages.
