284 pages, frontis, illustrations, restoration to corners and upper and lower spine, nicely done, lettering on spine barely visible, portrait on front cover not chipped as usually found. Very nice collectible copy. Jenkins Basic Texas Books 200 "These memoirs were written by a sergeant in Company B, Frontier Battalion, Texas Rangers. He served under Bill McDonald and others between 1888 and 1900, a period for which there are few surviving ranger recollections. In 1871 he became a Texas cowboy and began moving herds up the Chisholm Trail. Gradually, he fell into law enforcement work, as deputy sheriff and as a agent for the Pinkertons." Howes S1129, Rader 3007, Graff 4027, Adams One-Fifty 134, Herd 2201, Six-Guns 2165 "Tells about the life of this Texas Ranger and contains chapters about the hanging of Bill Longley, the Cook gang, and some Texas feuds and bank robberies." Very difficult to find in the first edition.
