"In the early summer of 1967 a small band of Spanish Americans raided the courthouse in a dusty town in New Mexico to publicize their claim that much of the land in the state had been stolen from their ancestors. The author, who happened to be in New Mexico at the time, was drawn into the events and set out to discover what had happened during the raid, why it had happened, the legitimacy of the raiders' claims, and what sort of person was their leader, Reies Tijerina."--Amazon

John McCanless, a brave old ex-professor of veterinary medicine whose mind has snapped for better or worse, sets out to save his daughter's virtue and his mortgaged ranch in this satirical, poignant tale about a man whose unquenchable thirst for freedom drives him into the role of the outlaw hero, the hunter pursued. With a Mexican wetback as his trail crew, Scandalous JOhn starts out on the long trail north to drive his herd across twentieth-century America. Along the way he encounters hunger and storm, carnal temptation, ruffians and reformers. In the authentic Old West ghost town of Warbag, Colorado, Inc., he is captured and almost done in; but he escapes to find his way through to the cattle market of the world, Chicago, where he meets his fate under the sun. "If you want to go someplace in the world," John had said, "you've got to cut fence now and again. The extent of a man's fences is the extent of his fears, and there's only two kinds of people in the world, the living and the afraid."
