Reseña del editor:

Captain Henry Lee Ransom lived during a rarely researched era and was never written about before, despite serving three times as a Texas Ranger. Quiet but authoritative, his phenomenal marksmanship and bravery earned him much respect. And though an incorruptible and courageous lawman, Captain Ransom adored his children and proved to be a gentle, loving, family man.He lived during turbulent times, especially during the Border's "Bandit Wars." Fighting with the US Army in the Spanish-American War, he served in the Philippines twice. While there he earned a medal and promotion for bravery. One astounding feat is described when he and others spent six months in the jungles to rescue soldiers kidnaped by savages.When he wasn't serving in the capacity of a soldier, he was a detective in Houston and was also appointed by the mayor as chief of police to clean up the town. Though his stint as police chief was short, the women of hte town said they could walk safely in the streets afterwards.Termed "one of the great captains" by his peers, he was loved by the law-abiding and feared by criminals. He believed all should obey the law, including high public officials. Perhaps this could have attributed to his assassination at age 44, in 1918--he knew too much and was about to report it. His death was claimed to be an accident, but extensive research in the State Archives produced clues revealed in this book that would indicate otherwise.
