KIRKUS REVIEW

Personally, I thought Carl Van Doren's foreword the best part of the book. The full length play was thinly spun; its symbolism was far-fetched, its action tenuous. The first scene, when Davy gathers his strange followers, prior to setting out for ""the Texas"" -- and the final scene in the Alamo, have high spots of real drama; there are one or two vivid moments in the body of the play. But as a whole it is pretty dull.
