Read full description of the books:
In Lone Star Justice, Utley discusses the first century of the iconic Texas lawmen, the Texas Rangers. Tracing their history as a civilian force drawn together to protect settlers against Indian and Mexican raids, Utley takes the reader through legislation and historical documents as he examines the myth, legend, and fact surrounding the Rangers founding and their growth into the law enforcement agency known today. The history of the Rangers is interwoven with the unique history of Texas itself and makes for some great reading. The one thing Utley doesn't shy away from it the fact that not all the Ranger were exemplary men. Some were brutes and bullies driven be a deep-seated cultural prejudice against Mexicans and Native American, but the ones that stand out were also courageous, natural born leaders. If you want to learn about the Rangers, this is a great place to start.
