Find out more about this title here: http://johnhillfortexas.com/ During his distinguished career, John L. Hill Jr. served as secretary of state, attorney general, and chief justice of the state supreme court-the only person to hold all three state offices. Hill's office played a significant role in vastly expanding Texas consumer protections, waging war against wholesale rate increases by AT&T/Southwestern Bell; and resolving the disposition of Howard Hughes's fabled estate to bring tens of millions of dollars into Texas coffers. Before Hill's death in July 2007, Ernie Stromberger, journalist and Hill's longtime friend, worked with him to craft this first-person narrative.
