Editorial Reviews

Review

To the good fortune of us all, Jackson is back again, this time with One Ranger Returns. Packed full of compelling accounts of his dealings with smugglers, thieves, murderers, and other lawmen, this long-anticipated sequel promises to rival the original. This man is a true American hero. Don’t miss reading about his adventures. (Cowboy Magazine)

A great collection of stories outlining the illustrious career of a gifted lawman. (Guns & Ammo)

H. Joaquin Jackson, Texan, Lawman, and a Texas Ranger wrote this fascinating read as a sequel to his first book "One Ranger".

Sometimes there is not enough material for a second book, and this sequel is proof of that fact.

If you found "One Ranger" by H. Joaquin Jackson interesting, yea, inspirational, then you are going to treasure "One Ranger Returns."

This is life in Texas, "hair down" face-to-face, how it really is. The chapter by his wife, Shirley, is straight from the heart of a beautiful, highly talented, and courageous woman, sharing the details of her personal life.

One Ranger Returns has chapters by their sons, and I'll leave it to those who can truly read human hearts to decide what the first son has learned. Second son, Lance, is as near a clone as a man like Joaquin can ever have hoped for. Lance is very much his own man.

I recently heard an experienced forensic officer describe how, while she didn't have all the latest technology, she did know the fundamentals and they still worked as evidenced by cases won. "One Ranger Returns" is about fundamentals that worked and still works if the officer is man enough to learn them and employ them with integrity and courage.

A review of "One Ranger" is perfect for "One Ranger Returns:" "The book is awesome.... Joaquin Jackson is John Wayne with a real badge."

Couldn't put the book down. Great sequel to his first. A great sense of history in plain spoken words. Hope he writes another.

Every bit as compelling as the first book, this one takes readers beyond the solved cases and shows them what a Ranger's life looks like from the other side of the badge; the chapters on very cold cases and life lessons -- not all of them painless, not all of them simple -- round out the story of a remarkable lawman's career in Texas' vast West.

Seemed a reach to have enough material for a second book--not as interesting as the first book.

I happen to know Joaquin and he is bent to be understated. Not given to braggadocio or blowing incidents out of proportion.

I have tread, in most cases, where he has and for me reading his book is like "old homes week"

Ranger Jackson tells more of his life inside and outside the Rangers. The book adds a personal aspect to the history of the Twentieth Century Texas Rangers. I always have preferred to hear it from someone who was there.

Format: Paperback
H. Joaquin Jackson, Texan, Lawman, and a Texas Ranger wrote this fascinating read as a sequel to his first book "One Ranger". Ranger Jackson in his first book wrorte about his life growing up in Texas, joining the Marine Corps, becoming a lawman after the Marines and then joining the legendary Texas Rangers. In the book, he described the tough standards and training it took to become a Texas Ranger and the men who made the Texas Rangers legendary. Ranger Jackson in the sequel tells more stories about the infamous men he had to deal with, not with "Texas Justice" but with following the law. Ranger Jackson in his long career with the Rangers met many great lawmen, dealt with some very "tough hombres", honed his detective skills at the FBI Academy, and described the actions it took to chase down and arrest some very bad murderers, cattle rustlers, and strike agitators, just to name a few.
Ranger Jackson reminiscences about the experiences it took to maintain justice on the modern Texas/Western frontier, and each story is a page turner. He also talks about the dogs that became part of his family and how they impacted his life and family. Ranger Jackson's family (wife and sons) describe their living and loving a Ranger and how life wasn't always easy to say the least.
Ranger Jackson is a lawman who could of easily fit in with the Texas Rangers of old. He is tough, straightforward pulling no punches, knows the land, how to track not only lost cattle but outlaws, how to act with an iron hand yet be compassionate to the innocent victims of bad crimes, and is humble in how he became a Texas Ranger we all can admire.
