Summary
"Sergeant Rowdy Slater is the most skilled-and most incorrigible-soldier in Dog Company, 506th PIR, 101st Airborne, an elite group of paratroopers fighting for the world's freedom in World War II. Through a bizarre set of circumstances, Rowdy returns to the States after the war, turns his life around, and falls into the only job he can find-preacher at the sparsely populated community church in Cut Eye, Texas, a dusty highway town situated at the midpoint of nowhere and emptiness. The town's lawman, suspicious that Rowdy has changed his ways only as a cover up, gives an ultimatum: Rowdy must survive one complete year as Cut Eye's new minister or end up in jail. At first Rowdy thinks the job will be easy, particularly because he's taking over for a young female missionary who's held the church together while the men were at war. But when a dark-hearted acquaintance from Rowdy's past shows up with a plan to make some quick cash, Rowdy becomes ensnared due to an irrevocable favor, and life turns decidedly difficult"--
Summary
Sergeant Rowdy Slater, a paratrooper in Dog Company during World War II, robs a bank with Crazy Ake upon his return to West Texas. For his actions, he's given an ultimatum: go straight to jail or serve one year as the town minister in small Cut Eye, Texas. Slater expects the ministry job to be easy, but he's confronted with a decision when Crazy Ake sets his sights on easy cash again.
