Summary
  • Texan Hack Holland, a political candidate, becomes involved with the civil rights movement, a stand that forces him to reassess his priorities and goals
  • " ... Hackberry Holland makes his first appearance in this early gem ... Against the backdrop of growing civil rights turmoil in a sultry border town, the hard-drinking ex-POW attorney yields to the myriad of urgings of his wife, his brother, and his so-called friends to make a bid for a congressional seat--and finds himself embroiled in the seamy world of Texas powerbrokers. And when Hack attempts to overturn an old army buddy's conviction, and crosses paths with a beautiful union organizer who speaks to his heart in a way no one else has, he finds both a new love and a new purpose as he breaks free from the shackles of wealth and expectation to bring justice to the underserved."--Page 4 of cover
