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 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?
Rescuing Crockett is the gripping debut of the Silas Grant series. If you like suspenseful adventure, historical authenticity, a coming of age story, and an immersive reading experience, you’ll love David Z Pyke’s tale of redemption that The Historical Fiction Company hails as "a remarkable historical novel… all your senses are involved in the battles, the landscape, the emotions, and the intrigue of this unfolding mystery. The characters are well-fleshed out, as real as a Texas storm, and the propulsion of the storyline keeps one glued to the narrative until the very end."

I so loved reading this story, it is my favorite one where they blend truth and fiction. It makes you wonder could David Crockett really have lived and been captured as a prisoner. This is a new to me author, but I can’t wait to read more of his stories. If you keep writing them, Mr. Pyke, I will keep reading them.
