From distinguished historian William C. Davis comes the definitive book about the lives of three American legends, the forces that brought them together, and the truth about what really happened at the Alamo.Three Roads to the Alamo is a Powerful Combination of history and biography. Based on exhaustive research and unprecedented access to Mexican archives, it strips away the many layers of myth, legend, and fable that surround Davey Crockett, Jim Bowie, and William Travis to provide a fascinating account of their lives and the driving historical forces that pushed them and millions of others out west. Each man represented the three distinct kinds of people responsible for taming the frontier. Crockett stood for those who existed on the edge of the wilderness, for whom nothing was ever permanent. Bowie epitomized those who invariably followed, the entrepreneurs and exploiters who profited and moved on. And Travis was the man of community, the law giver, town builder, and nation founder who came to stay.United by their Scots-Irish heritage, restlessness and ambition, and involvement in Texas settling, these three men found themselves together at the crossroads of one of America's most famous battles, the heroic stand at the Alamo. The first book to trace the full lives of these three heroes and simultaneously analyze the myth of the Alamo, this forceful and potentially controversial work provides a fresh perspective on the frontier experience and will be welcomed by scholars, historians, and fans of the American West.
