Abstract:

Fictionized biography of James Bowie, inventor of the Bowie knife and hero of the Alamo.

Tempered Blade is the story of Jim Bowie. The facts themselves are so incredible that they need the aid of the creative artist to seem plausible. Monte Barrett has prepared the biography of perhaps the most vivid figure in all the flamboyant history of Texas, then used is as the basis of an even more stirring and convincing novel. Reader's who thrilled to Monte Barrett's Sun in Their Eyes will find the best character of the earlier book reappearing, Jess Leeman, the superb woodsman with the scarred face the sardonic speech, and they will welcome the son of Cecily and Johnathan Kirk, young Marsten Kirk. All readers will be interested in the flaming career of Bowie and the great period of Texas' struggle for freedom, for the story of James Bowie has a sweep and power and heroism that will touch high hearts everywhere -- Book jacket.
