Learn about the men behind the legendary star

This record takes readers through the two hundred-year-history of the Texas Rangers and the changes that took place in the state from the organization's inception to its current incarnation. Emphasis is placed on the diversity of those who assisted the Rangers, including Native Americans, Texans of Mexican heritage, and African Americans, along with the newest addition--women rangers. Covering the creation of the Rangers as a response to territorial conflict, their role under the Republic, their defense against Mexican invaders, and their evolution during the twentieth century, Melanie Chrismer has created the perfect resource for the classroom.
