David Crockett His Life And Adventures
A LITTLE more than a hundred years ago, a poor man, by the name of Crockett, embarked on board an emigrant-ship, in Ireland, for the New World. He was in the humblest station in life.

After a year or two, Crockett, with his little family, crossed the almost pathless Alleghenies. Father, mother, and children trudged along through the rugged defiles and over the rocky cliffs, on foot. Probably a single packhorse conveyed their few household goods. The hatchet and the rifle were the only means of obtaining food, shelter, and even clothing.

This, to them, was almost sumptuous food. The skin of the deer, by a rapid and simple process of tanning, supplied them with moccasins, and afforded material for the repair of their tattered garments.
