Publisher's Summary

In the early 1870's, the young state of Texas was struggling to survive. Its vast, undeveloped land of over 260 thousand square miles became a haven for the lawless. Murderers, rustlers and renegade bands of hostile Indians and Comanchero roamed the vast wastelands of west Texas with only a narrow river separating them from the sanctuary of Mexico. One group of dedicated lawmen stood between this element and the law-abiding citizenry - the Texas Rangers. This is the story of one of those men. Shawgo - Texas Ranger. Award-winning author Dusty Rhodes was born in Eastern Oklahoma - formerly the notorious Indian Territory. Dusty grew up on stories of the old west. After retirement, he began taking down those stories that had been gathering dust on the shelves of his mind and doing what he had dreamed of doing since childhood - writing historical westerns. His first book, Man Hunter, was named the best western e-book of 2002.

Good western

Gene Engene does a great job reading Dusty Rhodes books. He has a great voice for a western. The book has a good story line and lots of action to keep one interested, no sex, foul words or unnecessary violence. Shawgo as a Texas Ranger chases bad men and Indians as well as corrupt politicians. The valley he lives in sounds beautiful, wish I could pack up and move there and watch the horses, cattle and goats graze. Hope there are more books about Shawgo. Westerns make a nice change of pace stories.

Another Good One by Dusty Rhodes!

Dusty Rhodes has a way of holding your attention to the end. He seems to know to what lengths he can go into his descriptions of things giving the reader a mental picture of the terrain, people, or situation without boring them.

Although fiction, Shawgo gives us an idea of the dangers of being a Texas Ranger and the wide scope of their duties...and why they were sorely needed to bring law and order into a lawless land.

Gene Engene was a good choice for narrator--he gave a great performance.

This book should not disappoint any fan of western genre.
