Summary
"Set in early 1950s Kansas, Texas, and thereabouts, this is the picaresque tale of the vagabond teenaged son of a Kansas state trooper. Blinded in one eye in a game of kick the can, One-Eyed Mack, no longer able to become a highway patrolman, becomes a pirate instead. Sporting a black eye-patch, Mack and his newfound criminal friend, Tom Bell Pepper Bowen, careen through rural Texas in a hijacked bus. One-Eyed Mack's subsequent adventures involve Roy Rogers and Dale Evans, the governor of Texas, and Tom's father, locked up in Leavenworth. By the co-anchor of The MacNeil-Lehrer NewsHour , this easygoing, entertaining yarn should appeal to faithful readers of "down home"--Library Journal
