Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"In the annals of law enforcement few groups or agencies have become as encrusted with legend as the Texas Rangers. The always-readable historian Robert Utley has done a thorough job of chipping away these encrustations and revealing the Ranger's rather rag-and-bone, catch-as-catch-can beginning in a time when the Texas frontier was very far from being stable or safe. A fine book."—Larry McMurtry, author of Lonesome Dove

"A rip-snortin', six-guns-blazin' saga of good guys and bad guys who were sometimes one and the same. By taking on the Texas Rangers, Utley, an accomplished and well-regarded historian of the American West, risks treading on ground that is both hallowed and thoroughly documented. He skirts those issues by turning in a balanced history.... An accessible survey of some interesting—and bloody—times."—Kirkus Reviews

"Extensively researched and well written, this new and exciting history of the Texas Rangers is certain to replace Walter P. Webb's classic, but dated, account. In a politicized age often critical of the Rangers, Utley is, above all, fairminded and never stampeded by folklore or myth."—William Goetzmann, Jack S. Blanton, Sr, Chair in History and American Studies, University of Texas at Austin
