KIRKUS REVIEW

The counter attack made by the Texas Rangers against native son desperadoes, Mexican marauders, Indians and cattle rustlers is described with vitality and interest here. How the Rangers brought law and order to the ""quarter of a million square miles of raw wilderness"" that was Texas, how they maintained an ethical code of foolhardy courage (Never surrender, never fire the first shot; always be willing to surrender your life for your comrade) creates wholesale and credible heroes for boys and girls alike. The role of the Ranger in the Civil War is also documented. Original treatment of frontier Americana.
