It is truly a joy to share some of my favorite titles or some of the titles that are on my To Read list with family and friends. When I learned of future travels from family and friends my mind quickly jumps, not to their adventure, but to wonder about the read they will take along. So I often offer a title or two for their consideration, and boldly send them a copy if I have it on hand.
This one is one of my suggested titles to a dear family member who just happens to be adventuring to Central Texas! Take a look and enjoy.

Contrary to legend, we now know that the defenders of the Alamo in the war for Texas independence were killed in a predawn attack, forcing a wild melee inside the fort before many of its defenders had even awoken. Tucker examines the prelude to the conflict, reveals that many of the Alamo’s defenders staged breakouts from the fort, and provides a realistic interpretation of one of the seminal events in North American history.
