First Find the Courthouse is an entertaining resource book for anyone interested in law as well as a social commentary on the character of West Texas and its people by one of its own, Mary Katherine Metcalfe Earney. From the judge who killed his man John Wayne-style on the dusty streets of Del Rio to the judge who lost his pants in court, the history of the 83rd Judicial District of Texas is a lively story of friends and neighbors in the Trans-Pecos West.
