Publisher's Summary

The Texas Rangers were institutionally birthed in 1874 with the formation of the Frontier Battalion. They were tasked with interdicting Indian incursions into the frontier settlements and dealing with the lawlessness running rampant throughout Texas. In an effort to put a human face on the Rangers, Bob Alexander tells the story of one of the six companies of the Frontier Battalion, Company D. Beginning with their start as Indian fighters against the Comanches and Kiowas, Alexander explores the history of Company D as they rounded up numerous Texas outlaws and cattle thieves, engaged in border skirmishes along the Rio Grande, and participated in notable episodes such as the fence cutter wars. Winchester Warriors is an evenhanded and impartial assessment of Company D and its colorful cadre of Texas Rangers. Their laudable deeds are explored in detail, but by the same token their shameful misadventures are not whitewashed. These Texas Rangers were simply people, good and bad - and sometimes indifferent. This new study, extensively researched in both primary and secondary sources, will appeal to scholars and aficionados of the Texas Rangers and western history.

A Good Specefic Book

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

If you are interested in Western, Texas, or Ranger history, then yes.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Winchester Warriors?

I lived in the Hill Country of Texas for fourteen years and it was fun to identify all the places where Company D Texas Rangers cut their teeth on Indian fighting and law enforcement.

Have you listened to any of Theo Holland’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

His voice perfectly reflects the time and subject of the book; not distracting in any way; draws the reader into the story.

Winchester Warriors Review

This book provided a good historical perspective of the Rangers-Company D for the late 1800s.
