Willis Young, son of the legendary Old West bank robber Wilson Young, is back from France, a broken man. A World War I flying ace, he has seen enough killing and destruction to last him a lifetime. He has lost his zest for life. Willis is reunited with his former mechanic, now a prosperous wildcat oil driller, and the two set out on a crazy scheme to drill for oil on Willis's land--200,000 acres of the most worthless soil in the hell on earth that is West Texas. But then the well strikes water--and Willis undergoes a transformation that changes not only his life, but the lives of everyone around him.

From his novel, The Bank Robber (which introduced Wilson Young and was made into the movie "The Spikes Gang"), readers have known Giles Tippette was special. More than one million Giles Tippette books in print prove they were right.

A metaphor for today's America, with allusions to the classic myths of the Southwest, Southwest of Heaven is a novel about life, family, friendship, love, spirituality, greed, and the power of one man to make a difference.
