About the Book
Twelve-year-old Bing, visiting his Uncle Jim Groves, Sheriff of Wilbarger County, Texas in 1922, is swept up in adventure: investigating a bank robbery and tearing off in a posse after the robber, pursuing by car and on horseback the famous outlaw Frank Holloway across two states, then breaking off for a private mission of revenge, chasing the Eastern con men behind the theft of his grandfather's long-buried bones.

Bing engagingly narrates his encounters with newsreel cameramen, an English lord, a biplane, a blue norther, his own murderous impulses, and the historic (if illusory) "Edwards Estate"--not to mention a certain embroidered Mexican dress--in this richly detailed, Texas-sized adventure story about growing up, inspired by real events from the author's family history.
