Well, me and Russel are figuring on heading down Texas way. That ain't no place these days for a riverboat gambler with wobbly legs.
There are times when cowardice is a virtue, my dear Colonel. It makes choosing a cause so very simple. Now, I know nothing about Texas of which you speak, but I do know of the fury of the outraged minions of the law. And as a consequence, I fear what lies behind me far more than the unknown that lies ahead.

The life of Davy Crockett is told in this popular Disney television series that introduces Fess Parker as the resourceful backwoodsman from Tennessee. Crockett's exploits as Indian fighter are detailed in the first part of the series as he and partner Georgie Russel save the soldiers from being wiped out by the Creeks in that Indian war. Crockett as a Congressman from Tennessee comprises the middle part which sets up the third and exciting finale as Crockett and friends battle the Mexican army in the famous battle at the Alamo. The Appalachians of North Carolina where the Creek War skirmishes were filmed show beautiful mountain vistas and add realism to this fine film story of an American legend.
