Pressestimmen

He hasn't thrown a hand gernades into Alamo Scholarship, he's dropped a blockbuster! This book is going to have more self-proclaimed "Alamo Scholars" screaming bloody murder than you can shake a stick at.--C.F. Eckhardt "The National Tombstone Epitaph "

Kurzbeschreibung

Destined to be a controversial history of one of the most popular Americna landmarks, Alamo Traces is Thomas Ricks Lindley's masterpiece. Fifteen years of research makes this critical examination of the Alamo story a volume of historical truth and accuracy. The author burrows deep into the records and shovels away deposits of myth, folklore, and faulty research that are generations deep. Never wavering in its search for the bedrock of fact, this convincing speculation about what might really have happened during that courageous fight for independence.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A must read for Alamo buffs 14. Juli 2004
Von T O'Brien - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Alamo Traces: New Evidence and New Conclusions is an excellent read that looks for the truth about the siege and fall of the Alamo, and on a bigger scale, the Texas Revolution. Author Thomas Ricks Lindley takes on many of the myths and legends that have become accepted as fact over the years. Did Sam Houston really want to blow up the Alamo? How many Mexican casualties were there? Did Colonel William Barrett Travis, commander of the Alamo garrison, really draw a line in the sand allowing Moses Rose to slip over the wall and escape before the final assault? In great detail, Lindley tries to prove many of these accepted truths as either true or false. Not everyone will agree with all of his conclusions, but it is a highly entertaining. Highly recommended for anyone trying to learn more about the famous siege and fall of the Alamo in 1836.
What makes this book interesting is the fact that there are so many unknown things about the battle of the Alamo in February and March of 1836. It is almost certain that we will never know for certain what transpired during those thirteen days. Was David Crockett executed or is it just something made up by Jose Enrique de la Pena? Everyone has their own opinions about what they believed happened during the siege and battle, and that is what makes it fun to read and discuss things just as Thomas Ricks Lindley has done with this book. Highly worthwhile book that will make you think twice about your knowledge of the Alamo.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The truth shall set you free. 28. Juli 2003
Von Donald Hoffman - History teacher - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I am impressed with the amount of primary sources researched for the writing of this book. Most books rely on secondary sources to a grest extent and fail to examine the accuracy of the primary accounts, but not Mr. Lindley. He got his information for this book "straight from the horses mouth". In some cases he even investigated the accuracy of the horse. It is not a book of shared opinions, but rather the evidence comes the first hand accounts of the individuals involved and the governmental records of this period of history. His exhaustive search of the governmental records is obvious. This tireless research of many years makes him uniquely different in this regard.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Must Read for Texas History Buffs 27. März 2004
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Thomas Ricks Lindley is the best kind of historian - a person whose passion is evident by the detail of his research. Many books have been written about the Alamo and the Texas Revolution, but none are as replete with indepth, primary source material as Alamo Traces. Lindley has obviously spent many hours - perhaps a lifetime - in the obscure, out of the way archives of backwoods Texas so many academic historians avoid.
Lindley's work is controversial. It shatters cherished myths and supports others. His chapter on the "fictional" Louis Moses Rose is absolutely brilliant and should be the subject of a standalone manuscript. No myth of Texas history - excepting Travis' line - is more accepted, only to be based on absolutely no evidence. This chapter is a model for the emerging "science" of forensic history and should be studied in detail by all aspiring researchers.
The only drawback to the work is occasional problems with the author's prose. Important paragraphs are often confusing. However, the professional editorial staff of a more established publishing house could easily correct this problem. If Lindley continues to write - which he should - he would greatly benefit from a stearn editor that can provide constructive criticism on style.
Otherwise, this little book is certainly worth adding to one's library and is recommended over more cursory works such as H.C. Brands' almost cartoonish treatment of the revolution. Alamo Traces is for the serious enthusiast.

5.0 von 5 Sternen New Evidence and New Conclusions concerning the Alamo 9. Juli 2003
Von Gary D. Davis - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Mr. Lindley has obviously spent years at the State Archives
researching this book. The book contains 676 references, many
dating back to the 1830's. The list of references alone is well
worth the price of the text.
Without a doubt, some scholars are going to feel very uncomfortable since some of Mr. Lindley's conclusions do not agree with the accepted version we were taught in school. Especially since the author backs up his assertions with
documentation that dates back 160 years in some cases.
This book is a must for anyone with even a casual interest in
Texas history. We will certainly be hearing more about Mr. Lindley and his book Alamo Traces: New Evidence and New Conclusions.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Alamo Seen Clearly! 25. Februar 2004
Von Joe L. Blevins - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This book goes beyond the usual scope of history books by shedding light into the dark corridors of the Alamo's past. As an avid history buff, and an author on Texas history myself, I can appreciate the great amount of research and concern over telling the TRUTH for a change! So much fiction has been written in the past few years that it has "muddied the waters" over what actually happened. People start believing the fiction as fact, and some textbooks have not been much better other than to apply a revisionist's history to the facts and the important details to be more "politically correct." "Alamo Traces" sheds the light on the truth, and gives us an under the microscope view of the details and events that make the Alamo story so riviting to even nonTexans. As a fifth generation Texan I am alittle put out by some authors that have written fictional books using the names of real historical places to add credence to their fictional work. (Many times without the permission of the historical commission set up to protect it.) These fictional accounts have blurred the line between fact and fiction. This dedicated author went back to the state archives. He looked carefully at the story to explain the many important details and events properly. It sets the stage and tells the story from an understandable perspective. Well done! A must for any true history buff!
