Girl of the Alamo: The Story of Susanna Dickinson (Paperback)
Susanna Dickinson is one of the most legendary women in Texas history. Married to Captain Almaron Dickinson, she and her infant daughter Angelina were among the few survivors of the Battle of the Alamo. General Santa Anna was impressed with Dickinson and even offered to adopt Angelina and have her educated in Mexico. Santa Anna eventually released Dickinson and her daughter so she could spread word of his victory and tell the story of the Alamo. Noted Texas author, Rita Kerr tells Susannah Dickinson's story in this fictional biography that gives juvenile readers an inside account of the Alamo and life in early Texas.
