The Alamo is one of those American legends that will probably never die. Harrigan’s superbly written fictional account presents this saga through the lives of three fictitious characters: Mary Mott, a widow and innkeeper; her teenaged son, Terrell; and a naturalist named Edmund McGowan. We see them interact with Crockett, Bowie, Travis, Austin, and Houston at various places in Texas and the City of Mexico. Add to this a number of fictitious and historic Mexican characters, and we have a first-rate story. George Guidall’s performance of this long work is admirable. His characterizations are all consistent and entirely convincing. The narrative sections flow smoothly. David Crockett is an especially noteworthy treat, one of the most memorable characters this reviewer has heard in a long time. M.T.F. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 02]
