Tracking The Texas Rangers: The Nineteenth Century

Tracking The Texas Rangers: The Nineteenth Century


358 pages, SIGNED by Glasrud and Weiss. "An anthology of sixteen previously published articles and chapter excerpts, arranged in chronological history, covering key topics of the intrepid and sometimes controversial law officers named the Texas Rangers. Determining the role of the Rangers as the state evolved and what they actually accomplished for the benefit of the state is a difficult challenge-the actions of the Rangers fit no easy description. There is a dark side to the story of the Rangers; during the war with Mexico, for example, some murdered, pillaged, and raped. Yet these same Rangers eased the resultant United States victory. Even their beginning and the first use of the term "Texas Ranger" have mixed and complex origins."
