Publisher's Summary

Mike Cox, journalist and Texas Ranger grand master, recounts enthralling tales of men who proudly wore the silver Lone Star - once hand-carved from the Mexican five peso. Whether facing Indians, banditos, or Yankees, TexasRangers earned a reputation for being some of the most formidable lawmen in U.S. history.

Like reading case reports

Unfortunately, this book reads like a series of case reports. There isn't much background to most of the incidents described, so you feel like you've gotten the facts, but not much of a "story".

A good read

Cox tells a compelling story, and seems to have done his research in a thorough fashion. I'd have wished that he had more stories about John Coffee Hays, but I guess there is just not enough space for everything.

The reader did well to weave a fair amount of Texas sounding vowel sounds into the narrative without overdoing it. I could quibble about his pronouncing Bexar, but that would just be whining.

I'd highly recommend this audible book to anyone interested in this period of Texas history.
