    Should’t it read …Why was Davy Crockett KING of the wild frontier?….NOT KIND of the wild frontier? =( and I am only 13.

      Hi Wesley. Yes: it should read “king,” instead of “kind.” Thanks for catching our typo. And, 13 is a great age to be noticing typos and proofreading your own work! I bet your English teacher appreciates your eye.
