The Alamo is something this northeasterner only knew the vague details about, so I was pleased to read this children's history book with my son. Interesting details include the infighting and poor planning of the "heroes" of the Alamo that contributed to their defeat, as well as a broader picture of the conflicts among the Mexicans and American settlers in Texas.
