My latest book–Adam Huntsman: The Peg Leg Politician–will be released officially on February 11, 2011, on what would have been Huntsman’s 225th birthday. But copies will be available for purchase in early January if you can’t wait that long. Anyone who is interested in Tennessee history or David Crockett in particular will enjoy this 298-page biography. If you’re a Crockett fan, it offers a different perspective on his political career from the viewpoint of one of his most determined opponents.
