"J.R Edmondson's "The Alamo Story: From Early History to Current Conflicts" is the millennium's first book to thoroughly examine the famous [Shrine of Texas Liberty] from its origin as a Spanish New World mission to its modern status as an irreplaceable historical icon. But Edmondson's impressive volume is more than a revitalized retelling of an epic tale: It is a careful study of those [myths, mysteries, and misconceptions] that help us Remember the Alamo!"
William R. Chemerka
Founder of The Alamo Society
Editor of The Alamo Journal
"For generations, the story of the Alamo has intrigued readers of all ages. But these early stories have left many questions unanswered. Now writer J.R. Edmondson has researched his way through the myths and mysteries and misconceptions of the Alamo to produce a masterful story of those fateful and final hours. Of all the books written about the Alamo, Edmondson's is by far the best of the bunch".
Columnist, "San Angelo Standard-Times"
Author J.R. Edmondson captures the entire Alamo history in a cohesive and flowing narrative that brings the people and the drama to life with a sense of vivid reality and detail based on years of research.
