Editorial Review
The Texas Rangers are one of the most storied law enforcement agencies in the world. Nearly two centuries old, its reputation and mythology was solidified in the post-Civil War era, when it was responsible for the capture of numerous criminals-such as the notorious criminal Sam Bass-and the final defeat of the Apache Indians in Texas territory. This is the classic account of those years, by Ranger JAMES BUCHANAN GILLETT (1856-1937), an essential document of how the Rangers operated by someone who was there. Like the best rip-roaring adventure fiction, Gillett relates tales of: . the Mason County War . the Horrell-Higgins feud . Sam Bass and his train robber gang . the Salt Lake War . "treacherous braves, a faithful dog, and a murder" . the last fight between Rangers and Apaches . and much more.
