High Adventure Book Club | The Gates of the Alamo
January 26 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Join fellow Museum members in our Library for a lively discussion of Stephen Harrigan’s award-winning The Gates of the Alamo. A riveting novel about the siege and fall of the Alamo, the book is an unforgettable re-creation of time, a place, and a heroic conflict. Never before has the fall of the Alamo been portrayed with such immediacy. And for the first time, the story is told not just from the perspective of the American defenders but from that of the Mexican attackers as well.
“The historical novel at its best…With it, Harrigan [has] emerged as the leading Texan writer of his generation and an American writer of the first rank.” — San Francisco Chronicle
“A time and a place, a vanished world in which gallant death and honor still held tangible appeal, while merciless slaughter was more likely the rule, are evoked with great skill.” — The New York Times Book Review
The book is available at the Museum Shop.
