Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

The law-enforcement agency known as the Texas Rangers is featured prominently in Wild West folklore, and its accomplishments have been part of many pulp novels and popular television shows. Now those accomplishments are documented in Texas Ranger Biographies: Those Who Served, 1910–1921, a by-product of the authors’ The Texas Rangers and the Mexican Revolution: The Bloodiest Decade, 1910–1920 (2004). The new work is a biographical dictionary covering “all 1,782 Rangers who served along the Texas-Mexico border during the era of the Mexican Revolution.” The authors found that the study of the Texas Rangers can be tediously complex, as records are sketchy at best. Arrangement is alphabetical, with entries usually a paragraph in length. Entries contain brief biographical facts, a physical description, and details about career and immediate family. Many Rangers were related to others involved in law enforcement, whether Rangers or not, and entries often note “enforcement relatives.” There are also several genealogical charts. A few black-and-white photographs are included. This volume should find a place in the permanent history of Texas and the Texas Rangers. --Susan Awe

From the Inside Flap

Format: Hardcover
The collaborative work of Charles H. Harris III and Louis R. Sadler (both of whom are Professor Emeritus of History at New Mexico State University, Las Cruces), and Frances E. Harris (Associate Professor Emeritus of Nursing, New Mexico State University), "Texas Ranger Biographies: Those Who Served 1910-1920" is a 432-page compendium of succinctly written biographical sketches of all those who served as Texas Rangers. In 1920 the era of Texas Rangers serving to protect the citizenry from outlaws and marauding Native Americans has come to an end with calls in the state legislature to abolish them as a no longer justifiable expense. Then the Mexican Revolution began, originally launched from Texas on November 20, 1910 and for the next decade the role of the Texas Rangers was to deal with the subsequent border problems associated with the revolutionary activity of diverse and often hostile Mexican factions attempting to raise funds and recruits on Texas soil for their on-going conflicts. The results of more than 30 years of meticulous scholarship and seminal research, "Texas Ranger Biographies" is a unique historical record and an essential addition to academic library 19th Century American History reference shelves in general, and Texas Historical Studies collections in particular.

This book has been a great help in researching my father's group of Rangers. The picture on the cover is my Dad's Company L, at Fabens, Texas. My father was a Special Ranger, Company L under Captain Bill Davis. The picture was my dad's picture of his group, which I still own. I have heard many stories about these great men. I had a copy made of this group of rangers and donated it to the Texas Hall of Fame.
