Overview

Texas Ranger Tales: Stories That Need Telling by Mike Cox

They were men who could not be stampeded, said the late Colonel Homer Garrison Jr. of the men who wore the badge of the Texas Rangers. Colonist Stephen F. Austin, during the earliest days of Anglo settlement in Texas, wrote that he would employ 10 men to act as 'rangers' for the common defense... and thus, the famous Texas Rangers came into being. An important part of Texas history, these few good men were distinguished, unique even among themselves, and soon, even mythical. The myths and traditions surrounding the Rangers have endured and evolved. Today the Texas Rangers are among the most respected law enforcement agencies in the world.

Texas Rangers truly have a unique history. Most books on the subject are a chronilogical history of the great men and heroic deeds of Ranger lore. Mr. Cox's book is different in that it gives us some of their history with each chapter relating to a specific story or legend. The book contains tales, facts, and characters previously unfamiliar to me. This and Mr. Cox's writing made it an enjoyable and worthwhile read.
