The Texas Rangers: A Century of Frontier Defense

Webb's classic history of the Texas Rangers has been popular ever since its first publication in 1935. This edition is a reproduction of the original Houghton Mifflin edition.

From the Back Cover
'The Texas Rangers' depicts men whose influence was worked not by recklessness or foolhardiness, but by the steadiness of their purpose and performance. Also contributing was their sureness, among both the law-abiding and the law-breaking, that thought of self would never deter the Rangers from fulfilling the commitment of their vows as agents of law, order, and justice.
