The Texas Ranger is one of the most cherished symbols of the Lone Star State. While the Alamo is the undisputed symbol of Texas, the Ranger stands as an enduring symbol of the people of Texas. The Rangers were first formed to protect their neighbours from Indian attack, later they fought and died in a war for freedom, and staved off foreign invasion. Some Rangers died with glory at the Alamo, while many more were wounded, or died, in anonymity at dozens of obscure places. This volume by Dr Stephen L Hardin charts the history of this remarkable force from the 1820s through to the present day.Biografía del autor:

Buchbeschreibung Bloomsbury Publishing PLC, United Kingdom, 1991. Paperback. Zustand: New. Richard Hook (illustrator). Language: English. Brand new Book. This book describes the development of the Texas Rangers, from their beginnings in the early 1820s as an irregular force designed to combat the Comanche raids on settlers in Mexican-governed Texas. They played a major part in the fight for independence and in the early history of the Republic, fighting both the Mexicans and the Indian raiders. After Texas joined the Union, the Rangers fought alongside US regulars in the resulting war. As time moved on and the Indians and Mexicans became less of a threat, so they were replaced by new enemies. The Rangers now had a vital role to play in the taming of the West, facing adversaries such as the infamous John Wesley Harding. They have since been called to deal with rustlers, bootleggers and bandits and have developed into a modern and professional law enforcement organization.
