With Bowie at the Alamo
on May 04, 2010
Fredrick West has done an excellent job of telling an old story, complete with the surrounding history of Texas. As I got into the story, and the lead characters reached Texas (from Kentucky) I found myself back in Mrs. Crosby's eighth grade Texas history class in San Antonio. I was captivated and found West's writing thoroughly enjoyable. As an author of historical fiction, I understood how intricate the weaving of fictional and factual characters and Mr. West has done a credible job. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys history and happy endings.
