Publisher's Summary

Elmer Kelton, beloved chronicler of the Old West and recipient of an unprecedented seven Spur Awards, recounts the story of Santa Anna's lesser known massacre through the eyes of a lone survivor. Even in his old age, Josh Buckalew sometimes awakens in a cold sweat as he relives those horrifying moments at Goliad so long ago. And yet every time he retells the tale, his heart fills with gratitude for those brave Texans who gave their lives so others might live free.

Massacre????

I didn't think this book was nearly as good as the other works by Kelton. The narrator's inability to pronounce Texas cities was very distracting. Kelton is a superior author but seriously this isn't his best work.
