The Texas Rangers

19th-century Rangers protected their neighbours from Indian attack, fought and died in a war for freedom, and staved off foreign invasion. Few were paid regularly, if at all. Some Rangers died with glory at the Alamo, while many more were wounded, or died, in anonymity at dozens of obscure places. This volume by Stephen Hardin charts the history of this remarkable force from the 1820s through to the present day. Originally formed to combat the predatory Comanches, their later adversaries ranged from Mexican bandits to hardened criminals such as John Wesley Hardin and Bonnie and Clyde.
