John Maketa is the Director of Strategic Partnerships for Pearson TalentLens. book Sleuthing The Alamo: Davy Crockett's Last Stand And Other Mysteries Of The Texas Revolution (Hardcover) Pdf. When not writing, he enjoys doing puzzles, reading books and working on his culinary skills. I recommend it without a doubt. A sprawling, bawdy epic that crackles with life's joys, sorrows, and misadventures. I've been making smoothies for a while, but usually just make things up 'as I go' with whatever I have on hand. Let me ask you now something: Do you know where were you before you were born. While a couple of the pieces are ones that Maggie has taught before (such as Santa Sophia Pendant and Girandole Earrings), most are new and they all draw from the Italianate and Turkish influences that Maggie is most known for. I'm thrilled that the author did not disappoint with this one.

“This is not a dry rehearsal of Texas history facts. It is a fine Texas historian sharing struggles he had with accepted social practices in Texas in the 1950's - 1970's. I went through those same challenges, and Jim Crisp's essay captures it wonderfu...”

he encountered in the Texas of his youth, Crisp traces his path to the discovery of documents distorted, censored, and ignored--documents which reveal long-silenced voices from the Texan past. In each of four chapters focussing on specific documentary "finds," Crisp uncovers the clues that led to these archival discoveries. Along the way, the cast of characters expands to include: a prominent historian who tried to walk away from his first book; an unlikely teenaged "speechwriter" for General Sam Houston; three eyewitnesses to the death of Davy Crockett at the Alamo; a desperate inmate of Mexico City's Inquisition Prison, whose scribbled memoir of the war in Texas is now listed in the Guiness Book of World Records; and the stealthy slasher of the most famous historical painting in Texas. In his Afterword, Crisp explores the evidence behind the mythic "Yellow Rose of Texas," and examines some of the powerful forces at work in silencing the very voices from the past that we most need to hear today. Here then is an engaging first-person account of historical detective work, illuminating the methods of the serious historian--and the motives of those who prefer glorious myth to unflattering truth.
