"Presented with artful plausibility.... A thrilling historical drama, as engrossing as it is edifying." —Kirkus Reviews

What if Davy Crockett survived the Alamo?

Texas, 1838. Silas Grant prepares for life with the girl of his dreams. The resourceful sixteen-year-old is learning the blacksmith trade from his father and frontier skills from Texas Revolution veterans. But when a portrait of David Crockett raises the possibility that the beloved frontiersman didn't die two years earlier, Silas joins a quest for the truth.

Exploring a world healing from the war, Silas and his fellow Texians investigate the accounts of Alamo survivors, follow a trail of clues across Texas and Mexico, and pursue a witness to the battle's final moments. Their odyssey turns lethal as layers of the last stand's mystery peel away to expose a shocking secret.

Will the revelation stun a nation or ignite a fatal showdown?

Rescuing Crockett is an adventure, a mystery, a thriller, and a love story set in the turbulent years of the Republic of Texas. If you like historical fiction in the tradition of Bernard Cornwell and Steven Pressfield, westerns in the tradition of Larry McMurtry and Paulette Jiles, high concept mystery thrillers in the tradition of Dan Brown, and Texas fiction in the tradition of Stephen Harrigan, you'll love David Z. Pyke's award-winning epic of the American West.
