Come and Take It: Search for the Treasure of the Alamo is a fascinating historical fiction by Landon Wallace. In the Texas Revolution of 1836, the Mexican army kills all the men defending the Alamo, except Joe, William Barret Travis’ slave. Joe escapes with a map entrusted to him by Jim Bowie that leads to his treasure. Unfortunately, Joe loses the map but keeps track of the person who has it. In 2013, burglars attack his 93-year-old descendant, Joe Travis, who dies without telling relatives of his ancestor’s secret. Nat, his grandson, receives puzzling information from his grandfather’s friend, Ambrose. When Ambrose suddenly dies, Nat is convinced his grandfather’s attackers were involved. He digs deeper into his family’s history with the help of Renee, his brother’s beautiful ex-wife. What they discover could get them murdered by persons linked to the historical past of the Alamo.
Portions of the historic battle of the Alamo depicted in Come and Take It: Search for the Treasure of the Alamo give good insight into the war. It is a lovely story by Landon Wallace, who tells an exciting, treasure hunting adventure structured around historical facts of the famous Texas Revolution. He takes readers into the revolution to meet renowned figures like Jim Bowie, William Barret Travis, and Mexico’s Santa Ana. Other characters also drew my attention with their expressive personalities and purposes. Landon Wallace shows another side of Texas I am unfamiliar with; reflective of the past and modern-day Alamo restorations and proud, devoted historians.
