but it's not. It's the story of a real woman who survived the battle of the Alamo, along w/ her young daughter. Her husband, and all the other men from the Alamo were not so fortunate.
With great strength of character, even during her grief, she stood up to Santa Anna refusing his offers of charity. She carried the tale of the Alamo defeat to San Houston. Her message helped to galvanize -- motivate -- the troops to push on towards victory.
Written by John Jakes, this is not a tale for young pre-school aged children. It's definately more of a historical sort of resource for those doing research or interested in that time/era/place.
