The REAL story of the Texas Rangers - the good, the bad and the ugly. com User, June 26, 2007. A must read for the Texas Ranger enthusiast and those interested in the history of law enforcement in Texas. I loved the section about "Garrison's Rangers". While this isn't as romantically wild and woolly as the previous volume-it's inevitable, as automobiles replace horses and the solving of cases relies on more technical tools-it's still engaging and colorful.

Any documentation from the Texas Rangers Museum and Hall of Fame is conspicuously absent. Utley never does fulfill his promise of bringing the history of the Texas Rangers into the modern era. the 1930s through the 1970s are covered in a single chapter with another for 1970 onward. There appears to have been no actual effort to obtain modern resources or talk to today's Rangers. This is a disappointing read, lacking in scholarship and objectivity. I expected better of this author.

From The Lone Ranger to Lonesome Dove, the Texas Rangers have been .

From The Lone Ranger to Lonesome Dove, the Texas Rangers have been celebrated in fact and fiction for their daring exploits in bringing justice to the Old West. In Lone Star Justice, best-selling author Robert M. Utley captures the first hundred years of Ranger history, in a narrative packed with adventures worthy of Zane Grey or Larry McMurtry. The Rangers began in the 1820s as loose groups of citizen soldiers, banding together to chase Indians and Mexicans on the raw Texas frontier. As the Rangers evolved from part-time warriors to full-time lawmen by 1874, they learned to face new dangers, including homicidal feuds, labor strikes, and vigilantes turned mobs.

Based on unprecedented access to Ranger archives, Lone Star Lawmen chronicles one hundred years of high adventure as told by one of the nation's most respected Western historians. Highlighting the gradual evolution of this celebrated force, Robert M. Utley reveals how the outlaw-pursuing horseback riders of yesteryear became a modern law enforcement agency combating urban crime in Texas's big cities, assisted by the latest advances in forensic science. Modernization didn't mean losing their toughness and independent spirit, however, and Utley predicts how the Rangers will continue to bring justice to the West in the twenty-first century.
