Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 3–7—Hale returns to history in sequential art format, this time tackling the Alamo. Vicente Guerrero, Davy Crockett, Jim Bowie, and Stephen F. Austin lead the titular "all-star" cast in this tale of how an untamed land became Texas. In the early 1800s, Native Americans, the Mexican government, and settlers from other areas of the United States were fighting over the territory that would become the Lone Star state. Hale's vivid illustrations—rendered in black, white, and shades of gray, with tinges of yellow—and witty text tell the story, from Texas's near wilderness beginnings to the Battle of the Alamo and Gen. Sam Houston's ultimate victory over Gen. Antonio López de Santa Anna at the Battle of San Jacinto. Complete with maps, this title is far more effective in telling the complete history than a straightforward state history book. VERDICT With its balance of gifted storytelling and hard facts, this work will appeal to reluctant readers and fans of history alike. A must-have that will add value to any children's graphic nonfiction collection—John Trischitti, Midland County Public Libraries, TX

5.0 out of 5 stars A fun, informative book!
By D. Hathaway on March 29, 2016
Tl;dr: A great read for older elementary and up. Factual and fun. Read it.
Nathan Hale’s 6th book, and it doesn’t disappoint. Once again, he takes a familiar backdrop and fills it with little-known (to most) and interesting details which are equal parts entertainment and education.
The historical Nathan Hale is back with his executioner and British officer to tell another tale. This time, Vicente Guerrero (and his band of executioners) join to help tell the story which, after all, mostly takes place in Mexico. This is a great touch and really helps propel the story while providing even more entertainment.
This book includes a relatively thorough (but not tedious) history of Texas before its statehood in 1845. I enjoyed feeling the sense of chaos inflicted by the politics of time. The story follows the “Alamo All-Stars” to tell the story: William Travis, Jim Bowie, Davy Crockett, and (not familiar to me) Juan Seguin. Actually, a lot of time is spent on Bowie and his many exploits which led to him being in the thick of Texas’s violent birth.
My largest gripe is with Santa Anna, who left no defenders of the Alamo alive. Thus, no reliable accounts of the defenders immediately before or during the battle. However, Nathan Hale did his best with what he had.
Also, once again, the maps and diagrams included inside the front and back covers are helpful to place the wide range of featured locations.
Full disclosure: I’m a history teacher, and I am painfully aware of how little most Americans know about their neighbors. Hopefully, this book will help fill in the blanks many have about our southern neighbor.
