Summary
This new biography examines the life and times of Captain John R. Hughes, the longest serving and most decorated Texas Ranger in history. Parsons, an independent scholar and the author of several books on the Texas Rangers, chronicles the life of Hughes, from his early life among the western Indian tribes and his ranching days in Texas, to his exciting career that spanned the turn of the twentieth century and saw the transformation of the region from the wild west to modern America. The work is well notated and includes numerous black and white photographs. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
