Catalogue Note

FIRST EDITION. McCalla was a Presbyterian minister with a taste for adventure. The present text is nicely summarized in the Dictionary of American Biography: "a curious miscellany of narrative, broad humor, religious sentiment, and defense of the morals of the Texans, along with several appendices, including a manual of procedure for church tribunals."
