Terrified for his life, he flees the state across the river to Texas, taking with him a beautiful Indian squaw and a fellow prisoner. And as they make their way towards General Houston's infamous Texas Rangers, they find themselves in the midst of the final tragic battle for the Alamo.

Remember The Alamo
The historical content of the book and meeting the defenders of the Alamo
I particularly enjoyed the final chapters when we where hearing about Jim Bowie, Dave Crocket ,Travis and Houston .James Lee Burke is a master author when he delves into Americas past history.What an authour.
An outstanding narrator he really delivers with his tone and voice.Brilliant.
I would have enjoyed listening to it in one sitting but I enjoyed it traveling to and from work
Some nice one liners in the book. I liked when Huw was pulling a fast one with the camp cook for provisions and the cooks-reply.I have listened to most of James Lee Burkes book and enjoyed them all.
