Jack Edmondson’s interpretation of James Bowie is exceptional. His deep knowledge and engaging storytelling bring this complex character to life. Somehow Jack highlights his bravery and historical significance without romanticizing too much where we’d forget that Bowie did some shady stuff. Thank you, Jack, for giving us this vivid glimpse into early American history.
