About Rescuing Crockett
What if Davy Crockett survived the Alamo?
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 the discovery of a portrait of David Crockett raises hope that the beloved folk hero 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 and pursue a witness to the battle’s final moments. Their odyssey turns lethal as layers of the mystery peel away to expose a shocking secret.
Will the revelation stun a nation or ignite a fatal showdown?

David Z. Pyke’s passion stems from his heritage: he’s a native Texan related to one of the Alamo defenders. His great-great-great-great-great-granduncle, Isaac Millsaps, was one of the Immortal 32, the reinforcements from Gonzales who answered William Barret Travis's call for help, rode to San Antonio, and died in the Alamo on March 6, 1836.
