Frontier San Antonio attracted a great many short-tempered miscreants and adventurers. It also drew missionary priests, conservative merchants and proper ladies, who established a polite society amidst all the commotion. These stories, some factual and some not so, are often in the words of participants in the events, from disorder in the Bullís Head Saloon to hiding silver on wagons to Mexico to the lynching of Bob Augustine in front of the Bishopís house.
Each story is illustrated with a drawing by noted Texas artist Jose Cisneros
