I'm behind on reading this book but my mom just finished it. This is her review. The Blood of Heroes was excellent! Every kid in Texas has taken Texas history in school and knows the story of the Alamo and the heros but this book tells that story from both sides with facts from extensive research. Loved reading the factual story of the lives of the Heros - not just the legends - and what lead them to the Alamo! The struggle for Texas independence was not pretty but it sure was interesting! If you like history and you love Texas I highly recommend this book!

Well researched book. I could see early Texas and the battlefields as the author described them. Mr. Donovan did an amazing job researching and writing this book.
