From the Inside Flap:

Scholastic Reading Counts! Selection
Notable Social Studies Trade Books for Young People (CBC)

"A fresh approach to the topic in a picture-book format."
--School Library Journal

"The author successfully conveys an epic view of a land and its history."
--Kirkus Reviews

The story of the Alamo encompasses far more than a thirteen-day siege that ended in a battle on March 6, 1836. In this groundbreaking work, that story begins in the 1500s with the Native Americans who inhabited the area we now call Texas. Page by page, different voices are heard--among them Spanish, Tejano, Texian, Mexican, and American. These are the men and women across the centuries who shaped the history of the land, and through their voices a poignant human drama unfolds. Their battles have long since been played out, yet those of us living today can keep their memory alive.

Acclaimed author Sherry Garland and master artist Ronald Himler have joined together to create a provocative book that sensitively depicts history through the perspectives of the people who lived it. Meticulously researched, remarkable in its art and language, and sweeping in scope, Voices of the Alamo is an unforgettable tribute to one of our nation's most enduring symbols.

Sherry Garland is a fifth-generation Texan and award-winning author of more than twenty-five books, including The Buffalo Soldier, which received a 2009 citation from the San Antonio Conservation Society, a 2008 Storytelling World Honor, and a 2007 Notable Social Studies Books for Young People award. She has always been fascinated by the history of her home state. In fact, her writing career began in high school when she entered an essay contest about Texas. She started the entry with the words, "I've never seen the Alamo." Since then, she has visited the site many times, and the strong sense of history surrounding its stone walls continues to inspire her. Garland is also the author of Best Horse on the Force, published by Pelican.

Ronald Himler has been illustrating children's books since 1972 and has over eighty books to his credit. His work has received numerous honors, including ALA Notables, the Society of Illustrators Silver Medal, and citations on the Texas Bluebonnet Award Master List.
