Heathcock understands this. To understand is one thing, to write such unflinching and harrowing stories about it with such grace and empathy is another. From base camp to the summit — here is an overview of the climb. This huge tour-de-force by a master scrivener begins with a college admissions interview that goes terrifically off the rails. My heart rises. All oppression is relieved.

She was his first wife - and she could ride almost as good as Bill himself Pecos Bill finds a Hard Outfit Well now, Texas jest became too tame for Pecos Bill once he killed off all the bad men, so he struck out for New Mexico, looking for a hard outfit.
