KIRKUS REVIEW

Tales of the Texas Rangers"", the eleven chapters included in this book present a history-in-brief of the force not only through its preliminary chronological survey but through the lives of ten of its outstanding members. From the days when the Rangers were but a handful of men to protect the settlers from Comanche raids on down to the small but efficient modern group, we are given the deeds of the tall-in-the-saddle men:-Jack Hays who was rescued from a hundred Comanches just as his last shot was fired, of Sam Walker who brought in the six shooter and, on the funny side, three Rangers who went to a ball in one frock coat. A book that fans the flames of glory where they might be left to glow for themselves, but one to find its ready market with devotees.
