Inspired by events in the life of the author’s grandfather, who was shot, but not killed, by the famous Bat Masterson in a saloon in Kansas, Pressed Down and Overflowing: The Tale of an Unlikely Trail Boss is the romantic, action-filled story of a young Christian cowboy during the tumultuous first two years of reconstruction in post–Civil War Texas. As it addresses poverty, Indian wars, and the end of slavery, the story meanders along this particular cowboy’s trail, which leads through loves and marriages, friendships and conflicts with former slaves, dealings with horse and cattle thieves—as well as Comanche captivity, rape, murder, a big cattle drive along the famous Chisholm trail, a gun fight at the end of the trail in a saloon in Kansas, and a murder trial. Most of all, it is the story of a trail boss who does strange but good things and sees them come back to him pressed down and overflowing.
