Summary
Author Alexander, a retired special agent of the US Treasury Department, details the lives and deaths of 25 Texas Rangers who perished in the line of duty on the border of Texas and Mexico between 1874 and 1921. He also looks at the formation of the Texas Rangers and examines how the Rangers changed during the more modern era of 1901-1935. While the book is accessible to history buffs and general readers, scholars will appreciate the book's many notes and emphasis on archived documents. The book is illustrated with a whopping 60 b&w historical photos. Alexander has taught criminal justice and now writes nonfiction on policing in the Old West.
