Book of the Week: The Alamo.

This is my week for getting back to books that I inexplicably put down and didn’t pick up again.  In this case: John Myers Myers’ The Alamo (I don’t need to explain to you what the book is about, right?).  I wonder how Mr. Myers felt about the fact that — despite the fact that he was primarily a writer of history, with a focus on the American West — he’s remembered today primarily for Silverlock.  Then again, it’s not like he didn’t write Silverlock, now is it?

And so, adieu to Sweet Silver Blues.

    What, doesn’t everyone cover the Alamo extensively in school ? I think it was good for at least three weeks in seventh grade Texas history class.

    Seriously I think the only book I read on the Alamo was 13 days to glory, which was decent if not spectacular.
