AND OTHER NOTESThe completeness of the bibliographical citations in the following notes makes it unnecessary to include in this book separate
bibliographies on James Bowie, David Crockett, and William
Barret Travis, and on the siege of the Alamo. The reader may,
however, find useful a few short bibliographies contained in published works. All of the books listed below are available in public
On David Crockett:
| Claude Leroy Douglas, James Bowie; the Life of a Bravo ( Dallas: Banks Upshaw and Co., 1944).|
| Raymond W. Thorp, Bowie Knife ( Albuquerque: University of
New Mexico Press, 1948). This is not, of course, a biography,
but it contains a brief bibliography of value to anyone interested in the history of the Bowie knife.|
On William Barret Travis:
| Constance Rourke, Davy Crockett ( New York: Harcourt, Brace
and Co., 1934).|
| James A. Shackford, Davy Crockett, the Man and the Legend
( Chapel Hill: University of North Carolina Press, 1956).|
On the Alamo and the Siege:
|At this writing there is no published bibliography on Travis
that is anywhere near complete.|
| John Myers Myers, The Alamo ( New York: E. P. Dutton and
Notes to Chapter 1 -- Bowie's Forebears and Childhood
|See Walter Worthington Bowie, The Bowies and Their Kindred...( Washington, D. C.: Press of Cromwell Bros., 1899),
|See William and Mary College Quarterly and Historical Magazine, X, No. 4, April 1902, p. 278.|
