Publisher's Summary

After the Indian Bill passes forcing Native Americans onto Indian Reservations, Davy Crockett leaves Congress determined to help them. Along the way, he tames a black bear he names Death Hug. He bottles Tennessee air, soil, and water, and together they take the long journey to visit his Native American friends. With a little help from Death Hug, Davy transforms the desert into a lush land so the Native Americans can resume their traditional way of life.

Bottling Tennessee is suitable for listeners six to 106. Everyone can enjoy a good tall tale!

    "A fun tall tale!"

    My rating: 4.5 stars
    Audiobook narrator J. Scott Bennett rating: 5 stars

    This was a really fun short story about Davy Crockett as he transforms from Congressman back to frontiersman. While it is a tall tale, there is likely some truth to the history being that Crockett was a congressman and eventually left congress due to his disagreement of the Indian Removal Act.

    I like how these folk heroes have become legendary and eventually have grown to larger-than-life type stories (tall tales). It makes for a good read and can teach some morals and lessons along the way.

    This tale is the perfect length and I agree with the age limits of 6 to 106. I am going to see what my eight-year-old son thinks about it. Though, I feel like l may need to give him a little history on Davy Crockett first. I like how the end of the recording has an author’s note and mentions some Davy Crockett movies like King of the Wild Frontier. I wish my library or Amazon Prime would have some of these movies so I can show them to my son!

    I really enjoyed the narration of this book. He did a great job of changing his voice for different characters, including the bear!

    I hope this author write more Davy Crockett stories (or similar tall tales of past folk heroes)!

    I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    "Short but fun"

    I love tall tales, and this one was no exception. I liked the morals that were presented in the story and how Davey Crockett tries to fight for the rights of the Indians. Its just a fun book. I listened to the Audible audio version of this book narrated by J. Scott Bennett. I love Bennett as a narrator. He has a unique voice that was absolutely PERFECT for this book. If you enjoy tall tales, or reading about the times of Davey Crockett, I highly recommend this book.
