Stephen Harrigan brings one of the pivotal battles in American history to life
in this fiery, unforgettable novel. Meticulously researched and overflowing
with fascinating characters, The Gates of the Alamo is an
experience history buffs and fiction fans will equally enjoy.
Edmund McGowan is a
gifted naturalist whose life’s work is threatened by war. Mary Mott is a
widowed innkeeper forced to rely on her own resources for survival. Mary’s
sixteen-year-old son, Terrell, is a young man about to experience his first
taste of love. Focusing on these three characters—and sprinkling in real-life
figures such as James Bowie and Davy Crockett—Harrigan gives a human face to a
true American legend.
Told from the perspective
of the Mexican attackers as well as the American defenders, this New York
Times bestseller vividly recreates a time and a place where honor and
gallant death shaped generations of people. George Guidall’s narration captures
all the drama of ordinary people living through extraordinary events. Download and start listening now!
