DAVY CROCKETT'S EARTHQUAKE

A slight reversal of the Davy Crockett legend comes from a clever and natural story teller whose tale of hap and mishap will bring on laughter and the realization that fate could give Davy a poke in the ribs as well as a boost up front. It is a married and settled Davy who sets off one day with his hounds and horse, to hunt bears. With the bears he has no problem for there were so many of them in West Tennessee that ""he made his way through them as best he could..."". It is rather with his pursuant comet that Davy is troubled, for the comet, a ghoulish looking little spectre if there ever was one, wreaks just about enough havoc to make Davy thoroughly glad to get home again.
