Format: Hardcover
I recently purchased this book after a visit to the Alamo. I also had the wonderful opportunity to meet Ms. Ragsdale. This book portrays an aspect of history that is rarely seen. Most Americans learn about the fall of the Alamo in their history classes. However, this is the first time I have had the joy to read about those who were also within the Alamo's walls, the women. These women endured a great catastrophe with honor and grace. It is quite refreshing to be given the opportunity to read about the others who participated in our country's growth and freedom. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in American History, Women's Studies or in general. It is a book that moves you and brings you to the Alamo. It helps one to read it and imagine the scenes that were occurring at that point in time. A great read!

The book documents the Alamo battle through the women's eyes.
It is easy to read, and tells an important story of the birth of Texas.
Also, it also tells about the Navarro family instrumental to both the birth of the state and its constitution.
Finally, as a Corsican, I was interested in the Navarro's Corsican roots.

It is a small book. It states the timeline and facts about the end of the Alamo and is easy reading. The interviews with some of the survivors made it real.
