    A Texas Literary Classic recounts the life story of one Peter Hermano McGill, whose brawling progress across the frontier ends in his surprising elevation as the first Roman Catholic Saint in North Texas. 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. First published by Doubleday in 1968, this ironic tale of the Old Southwest--introduced by Bill Wittliff

    In this 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.
