Texas Ranger Tales: Heroic Stories from the Lone Star State (Hardcover) (Revised Edition) (Mike Cox)
About this item
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 Ranger Tales is a collection of legendary Texas Ranger stories, from new takes on the famous tales to fresh stories few, if any, have heard.
