A huge, riveting, deeply imagined novel about the siege and ì fall of the Alamo in 1836-an event that formed the consciousness ì of Texas and that resonates through American history-The Gates of ì the Alamo follows the lives of three people whose fates become ì bound to the now-fabled Texas fort: Edmund McGowan, a proud and ì gifted naturalist whose life's work is threatened by the war ì against Mexico; the resourceful, widowed innkeeper Mary Mott; and ì her sixteen-year-old son, Terrell, whose first shattering ì experience with love leads him instead to war, and into the ì crucible of the Alamo. The story unfolds with vivid immediacy and ì describes the pivotal battle from the perspective of the Mexican ì attackers as well as the American defenders. Filled with dramatic ì scenes, and abounding in fictional and historical ì personalities-among them James Bowie, David Crockett, William ì Travis, and General Santa Anna-The Gates of the Alamo ì enfolds us in history and, through its remarkable and passionate ì storytelling, allows us to participate at last in an American ì legend.
