9780141000022: The Gates of the Alamo

A huge, riveting, deeply imagined novel about the siege and fall of the Alamo in 1836--an event that formed the consciousness of Texas and that resonates through American history-- The Gates of the Alamo follows the lives of three people whose fates become bound to the now-fabled Texas fort: Edmund McGowan, a proud and gifted naturalist whose life's work is threatened by the war against Mexico; the resourceful, widowed innkeeper Mary Mott; and her sixteen-year-old son, Terrell, whose first shattering experience with love leads him instead to war, and into the crucible of the Alamo. The story unfolds with vivid immediacy and describes the pivotal battle from the perspective of the Mexican attackers as well as the American defenders. Filled with dramatic scenes, and abounding in fictional and historical personalities--among them James Bowie, David Crockett, William Travis, and General Santa Anna--The Gates of the Alamo enfolds us in history and, through its remarkable and passionate storytelling, allows us to participate at last in an American legend.

Read by Henry Leyva
Four cassettes, 6 hours

The Gates of the Alamo tells the tale of an American naturalist of towering intellect and ambition, powerfully but warily attracted to strong-minded, frontier-savvy widow with a 16-year-old son.  These three characters bring us deeply into the life of Texas in the year leading up to independence, and ultimately into the harrowing moments of the battle itself.

Crowded with dramatic and exciting scenes and with both fictional dn historical personalities--among them, Jim Bowie, Santa Anna, and Davie Crockett-- The Gates of the Alamo allows us to participate in an American legend.
