Product Description:

Review:

"Three Roads to the Alamo is a major contribution to both Texas and American history.... The mastery of its execution surpasses the book's ambitious scope. The day it appeared, Davis's treatment instantly supplanted all other single biographies of each of these individuals....

"The depth and breadth of research that informs the narrative are nothing less than awe inspiring.... A brilliant narrative. Davis is a writer of power, wisdom and sensitivity. Every page breathes new life into figures that mythology and sloppy research had all but shrouded.... A great book....

"Three Roads to the Alamo stands as an important publishing event that will substantially alter public understanding of its protagonists".

-- South Texas Studies

"The portraits of Crockett, Bowie and Travis are brilliantly sketched in a fast-moving story that keeps the reader riveted to the very last world. Far and away the best account of the Alamo I have ever read."-- Stephen B. Oates, author of "The Whirlwind of War" and "The Approaching Fury""Exhaustive research by a master practitioner sweeps aside layers of legend to reveal three giants of the Alamo in their true character and significance. "Three Roads to the Alamo" will occupy the authoritative high ground for years to come."-- Robert M. Utley"In "Three Roads to the Alamo, " Davis provides full and exhaustive portraits of [Crockett, Bowie, and Travis]...Because Davis has explored the three men's lives so thoughtfully and extensively, there is new resonance in each of their deaths. His interwoven accounts create a vivid picture of new worlds being shaped and of the kinds of men who did the shaping, even--or especially--in death." -- "New York Times Book Review""In weaving the three strands of his narrative.Davis evokes boisterous Jacksonian America. His 187 pages of notes attest to the thoroughness of his research. [Davis's] relentless search for facts.may be the best way to reduce romantic myths to reality." -- "Publishers Weekly"""Three Roads to the Alamo" is a major contribution to both Texas and American history.The mastery of its execution surpasses the book's ambitious scope. The day it appeared, Davis's treatment instantly supplanted all other single biographies of each of these individuals
