In 1874, Napoleon Augustus Jennings moved to Texas to join the Rangers under the command of L. H. McNelly. A year later, Jennings was thrown into the conflict between the native Spanish speaking Americans and the English speaking whites who came to settle the area. In an era of cattle thieving and terror, we follow Jennings through the southern border of Texas and find a vivid portrait of life in the late 19th century in one of the most lawless and hardest places to live in the United States.

Never Ending Love A princess, goddess, sweetness arose, Love's been sent, so my heart will grow. Ban no barriers, just open your heart, And allow for love to begin from the start. People get scared, when true love exists, But be assured, you're number one on my list, Cuz you've touched me in a way like never before, By showing me love, and quite a bit more. As far as I can love, we're together on the road, Through sickness and in health, and love's binding code. When my heart races faster every time I see you. My mind, heart, and soul are planted on love, For you, so true. So keep in mind, that never ending love exists, Out there, somewhere, and everywhere we turn. We seek to burn to find the passion, As love exists like in my eyes for you, My love, and as I'm morally taken over, Like quicksand through time, God helps me, And guides me in our path, Of true love. Pearly Gates I've seen the heavens of pearly gates, An' angels with lovely wings, With all desire of everyone's fates, An' harps with angels that sings, Colors enhanced like never before, An' water an' sand so clear, Mystic waves in flight to floor, With awe I shed a tear, Happy an' joy throughout-um all, An' peace within these clouds, No hurt an' sorrow if ya fall, 'Cuz Gods voice is so loud, Then I'm taken back to Earth, An' land on the softest sod, To see if we were now worth, The beautiful hands of God.

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. Tracking the Texas Rangers covers topics such as their early years, the great Comanche Raid of 1840, and the effective use of Colt revolvers. Article authors discuss Los Diablos Tejanos, Rip Ford, the Cortina War, the use of Hispanic Rangers and Rangers in labor disputes, and the recapture of Cynthia Ann Parker and the capture of John Wesley Hardin. The selections cover critical aspects of those experiences?organization, leadership, cultural implications, rural and urban life, and violence. In their introduction, editors Bruce A. Glasrud and Harold J. Weiss, Jr., discuss various themes and controversies surrounding the 19th-century Rangers and their treatment by historians over the years. They also have added annotations to the essays to explain where new research has shed additional light on an event to update or correct the original article text.--Amazon.com.

Authors Bob Alexander and Donaly E. Brice grappled with several issues when deciding how to relate a general history of the Texas Rangers. Should emphasis be placed on their frontier defense against Indians, or focus more on their role as guardians of the peace and statewide law enforcers? What about the tumultuous Mexican Revolution period, 1910-1920? And how to deal with myths and legends such as One Riot, One Ranger? Texas Rangers: Lives, Legend, and Legacy is the authors’ answer to these questions, a one-volume history of the Texas Rangers. The authors begin with the earliest Rangers in the pre-Republic years in 1823 and take the story up through the Republic, Mexican War, and Civil War. Then, with the advent of the Frontier Battalion, the authors focus in detail on each company A through F, relating what was happening within each company concurrently. Thereafter, Alexander and Brice tell the famous episodes of the Rangers that forged their legend, and bring the story up through the twentieth century to the present day in the final chapters.

“Harper gets to the business of historical, political and social analysis, he is quite knowledgeable, open minded and shrewd. There’s the long history of racial troubles, the rise of La Raza Unida and the remaking of the South Texas political landscape. T e era’s larger than life Texas movers & shakers and wheelers and dealers litter the story.” -Kirkus Reviews “The book covers Rodriguez’s Texas Ranger adventures, including dustups rowdy enough to rival any Western movie. Heavy emphasis on Texas’s history puts Rodriguez’s story in a wider context and broadens the book’s scope considerably.” -Clarion Reviews “This engaging biography is about Art Rodriguez Jr, who rose from a South Texas barrio to become the first Mexican-American Texas Ranger. Harper provides vivid background about shady politics, racial tension and praises his friend as a “Real-Life- Hero!” This is a fascinating read about changing times in Texas and one man who beat the odds.” -BlueInk Review
