Six Years With The Texas Rangers, 1875 To 1881


When James B. Gillett joined the newly created Texas Rangers in 1875 (the organization had existed in some form for forty years, but the present force stems from the reorganization of 1874) , its duties were as varied and its members as unorthodox as its methods were irregular. First published in 1921, Gillett's new classic account of his six years of service depicts with freshness and authenticity how the Rangers maintained law and order on the frontier--and occasionally dispensed summar justice. From the Mason County War to the Horrell-Higgins feud, the capture of Sam Bass, and the pursuit of Victorio's rebellious Apaches, Gillett saw the kind of action that established the Rangers' enduring reputation for effectiveness. ; B&W Illustrations and pictures; Small 8vo 7½" - 8" tall; 259 pages; 26116
