By Walter Prescott Webb

In his classic work The Texas Rangers, legendary historian Walter Prescott Webb strips away a century of myths to tell the full story of the frontier fighting force that combated Native Americans, cattle rustlers, and outlaws of all stripes with its own particular brand of courage and brutality. Many of the figures, from Jack Hays and the Battle of Plum Creek to Frank Hamer and the shootout with Bonnie and Clyde, became the stuff of Hollywood films. In an epic feat of scholarship drawing on original source material, Webb weaves these incidents into a graceful narrative of law and order on the frontier that has stood the test of time. Foreword by President Lyndon B. Johnson.
