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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Lindley has written "a methodical piece-by-piece dismantling of what we thought we knew, combined with convincing speculation about what might have really happened" -- Stephen Harrigan * Gates Of The Alamo *
Sometimes it takes a private dick to crack a case. In the case of the Alamo, a former criminal investigator for the U.S. Army spent 15 years investigating the minutiae of the historical record, and came up with some stunning new revelations. No one (except moviemakers) will ever be able to tell the old familiar tale the same way again. All in all, it is not the reputations of the Alamo heroes wh suffer in Lindley's book, but the Alamo historians, many of them very well respected names. The author has no fear of lancing sacred cows. * San Antonio Express-News *
In Thomas Ricks Lindley's new book, Alamo Traces: New Evidence and New Conclusions, Crockett's standing at the time of the seige is memorably caught. * Texas Monthly *
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 *
Sometimes it takes a private dick to crack the case. In the case of the Alamo, a former criminal investigator for the U.S. Army spent 15 years investigating the minutiae of the historical record, and came up with some stunning revelations. * Lynchburg News and Daily Advance *
The book that has most recently galvanized the Serious Alamo Guys is Alamo Traces. The result is possibly the most meticulously researched book in the history of Alamania. -- Anne Dingus * Texas Monthly *
'Explosive' is a fitting word to describe this landmark, if contentious book, which doggedly assails the accepted historial record of the Alamo, dramatically reinterpreting the favorite iconography of Texas revolutionary history. -- James L. Haley * Southwestern Historical Quarterly *
