Rod Timanus

Rod has been a great help for us with photos and graphics. He provided the only known photograph of Eric painting "The Storming of the Alamo" and the map of the Alamo for our interactive map. You can visit Rod's new website at

His artwork, maps and diagrams have appeared in several books, including Eyewitness to the Alamo, Battlefields of Texas and Death of a Legend by Bill Groneman (Republic of Texas Press) and The Alamo Story by J.R. Edmondson (Republic of Texas Press). His work has also appeared in The Alamo Almanac and Book of Lists and  The Davy Crockett Almanac and Book of Lists by William R. Chemerka (Eakin Press). He has contributed cover art, illustrations and written articles for "The Alamo Journal", official publication of The Alamo Society. From that career he began to write and illustrate his own books about the Old West.

He has retraced the last journeys of David Crockett, from Rutherford, Tennessee to the Alamo in San Antonio, Texas and Lt. Col. George Armstrong Custer from Ft. Lincoln in North Dakota through Montana to the Little Bighorn.

His newest book is along the Lewis and Clark Trail. All of Timanus's books but An Illustrated History of Texas Forts can be ordered at Pioneer Press by clicking here
