Shots fired at the Alamo cause Bonita, a mare, to take part in an animal version of the Runaway Scrape. This book is the fourth in a series inspired by the DreamWorks film Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron. The teacher might guide the animal-loving reader to find out why Bonita had to run from the Alamo. [Courtesy: Lucie Olson’s The Alamo and the Texas Revolution, An Annotated Bibliography.
