Summary

A tale of high adventure of the first order, with some of the most memorable characters to be found in the literature of the Old West. Selected by A.C. Greene as on of THE 50 BEST BOOKS ON TEXAS.In the publisher's opinion, this is the best Western ever written. It is still used as part of the curriculum at the University of Texas' Life and Literature of the Southwest, the course first taught by the legendary J. Frank Dobie."An absolutely first-rate account of the rambunctious life and times of the Reconstruction years in Texas...an enthralling era of derring-do which finds its perfect chronicler in Mr. Shrake. His novel has all the vigor and excitement of a war Apache in full cry." - George Plimpton"Shrake writes in a hard-driving, ironic style of extreme naturalism, giving a very different view of McGill?s 'sainthood? and providing a colorful description of the old West." - Publishers Weekly"The high adventure in Mr. Shrake?s book is interwoven with fascinating material about the lives and customs of the Indians." - New York Review of Books
