Reviews

"Bob Alexander, retired Treasury agent and unsurpassed interpreter of Old West lawmen, and Donaly Brice, senior state archivist, have combined their formidable skills to produce Texas Rangers: Lives, Legend, and Legacy. With fresh research and lively narrative, this is a single-volume work that should be on the shelf of every Texas history buff."--Bill O'Neal, State Historian of Texas

"Bob Alexander and Donaly Brice have written the first single-volume comprehensive history of the Texas Rangers since the Texas Centennial. Texas Rangers spans three centuries and chronicles the evolution of the agency, from the bloody frontier battleground to the city streets of today. Alexander's and Brice's extensive authorship, law enforcement experience, and outstanding credentials make for an entertaining and accurate portrayal. This is a fitting tribute to the oldest state law enforcement agency in the nation."--Byron Johnson, Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum

"There is always room for good books on the Rangers, and this is an exceptionally well written and researched one. It will be a standard reference on the Rangers. If one could have only a single volume on the Rangers, this should be it."--David Johnson, author of The Horrell Wars and John Ringo, King of the Cowboys
