With Bowie At The Alamo
By Frederick West
Remember The Alamo is a slogan we learned in grade school, but it was the horror of Goliad, where the infamous Mexican General Santa Anna massacred hundreds of prisoners of war, that motivated author Frederick West to pen With Bowie At The Alamo.
The result is a sweeping novel of such scope and depth that one cannot help being caught up in the drama even when the end is known.

WITH BOWIE AT THE ALAMO
Review by: Gordon Ryan 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. On www.Smashwords.com.
