Brian Kilmeade’s new book, Sam Houston & the Alamo Avengers, is another page-turner that sheds new light upon a pivotal point in American history. Kilmeade dives deep into the life and times of Sam Houston, an oft-overlooked but highly influential figure in America’s early years. Reading Sam Houston & the Alamo Avengers transports one back into the rough and tumble times of the early nineteenth century southwestern frontier.
Kilmeade tells the tale of Americans settling the vast Texas landmass in gripping fashion. At the same time, he weaves a vivid portrayal of Mexican dictator Santa Anna, and his ruthless quest to defeat Houston’s ragtag American forces and conquer Texas. Facing overwhelming odds, Kilmeade explains how the outgunned and outmanned Texans, under the astute leadership of General Sam Houston, avenged Santa Anna’s barbaric acts and defeated his grand army. Sam Houston & the Alamo Avengers is more than a history book, it is also a fascinating story of American patriotism and tenacity.
