"Sketches and Eccentricities of Colonel David Crockett of West Tennessee" by Matthew St. Clair Clarke is a series of sketches of the life of David "Davy" Crockett up to the year of 1833.

Matthew St. Clair Clarke (1790-1852) was an American journalist, author and politician. He was elected for seven terms as Clerk of the U. S. House of Representatives.

In "Sketches and Eccentricities of Colonel David Crockett of West Tennessee", Clarke gives many humorous anecdotes regarding the career of David "Davy" Crockett the "King of the Wild Frontier." Some of the stories may have been apocryphal, although many were told to him by Crockett himself during the Congressional legislative sessions during Crockett's terms from his Tennessee district. The stories emphasize the struggles of the frontiersman to crave a life for himself and his family from the wilderness.

The book was published anonymously and for a long time its authorship was disputed but it is now generally accepted that Clarke was the author. The book illustrates the qualities of the people on the frontier----self reliance, resiliency, comradeship, honesty, and above of humor---that were needed to successfully populate the West of early America.

A must read for those interested in this legendary American folk hero and his event-filled life to 1833.
