THE GATES OF THE ALAMO

by | Read by Henry Leyva

Historical Fiction • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2000

In 1911, Terrell Mott is honored by the citizens of San Antonio as the last survivor of the Alamo. As the parade progresses, Terrell remembers those terrifying days when war between the Texas colonists, Comanche Indians, and Mexico erupted at the Alamo, resulting in freedom for Texas. Henry Leyva skillfully creates the lives of Terrell; his courageous mother, Mary Mott; their friend and unlikely hero, Edmund McGowan, a botanist, in Mexican Texas. Leyva seamlessly slips from English to Spanish and back again while following the action and tension of the plot. The bloody war scenes leave nothing to the imagination, and Leyva is there every step of the way, illuminating the mythic battle. M.B.K. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 00]
