Supposedly written by Davy himself (they weren't), the almanacks began with the 1835 edition. The first four were printed in Nashville, maybe, but certainly in the South or the West. The next three were printed in Boston despite the cover claim that they were printed in Nashville. The Crockett almanacks not only strengthened the myth of Davy Crockett, but they were sure fire money makers -- about 55 different almanacs appeared in various parts of the country from 1835 to 1859. Crockett himself died at the Alamo on March 6, 1836.
The almanacks were filled with frontier humor and tall tales written in the vernacular. Men, women, and animals are larger than life. often brave, sometimes foolish. always entertaining.
