Overview

The lifeless bodies of Texas Rangers lay scattered on the floor of Bryant’s Gap. One man, wounded and left for the buzzards, comes back to consciousness and vows to bring the killers to justice. Now known only as the Lone Ranger, this man, his steadfast horse, Silver, and trusted friend, Tonto, set out to bring justice to the men who ambushed him and his fellow rangers.

With a ‘Hi-Yo Silver, Away-y-y-y,’ the Lone Ranger embodies classic American ideals of the champions of the Wild West. The Lone Ranger first found success as a 1933 radio show, then expanded into books, television, comics, and motion pictures. This iconic character has been portrayed George Seaton, Clayton Moore, and by Armie Hammer in the 2013 movie release The Lone Ranger (with Johnny Depp as Tonto).

Meet the Author

Francis Hamilton Striker was born on August 19, 1903, in Buffalo, New York. While in Buffalo, he attended Lafayette High School and the University of Buffalo, before dropping out to join a theater company in New York City. After that, he jumped back to Buffalo as a radio announcer, then to Cleveland, back to Buffalo and out to Detroit. It was during this period that he began writing radio mysteries and westerns. In 1932, Striker began work on “The Lone Ranger,” writing as many as 156 scripts per year. When that became hugely popular, he followed up with “The Green Hornet,” which featured a descendent of the Lone Ranger and “Sergeant Preston of the Ukon.” Due to the popularity of the subject, Striker began writing Lone Ranger novels, comic strips and movie serials. As television began to grow into a more popular medium and radio serials began to fade, Striker began writing the scripts for “The Lone Ranger” TV show. While moving with his wife and children on September 4, 1962, he was killed in an automobile accident, at the age of 59, in Elma, New York. He is buried in Arcade Rural Cemetery in Arcade, New York.
