Summary
"Praxiteles Swan, a red-headed fighting preacher who saw action at Sharpsburg and Gettysburg and who traveled the backroads of frontier East Texas as a Methodist circuit rider, stands tall among the immortal heroes of Texas fiction. This series of tales, narrated by one who knew Swan when he was one of the grand old men of Texas Methodism, is alive with battles of the Civil War and the eccentricities of frontier religion."--Page i
