In The Texas Rangers, published by UT Press in 1965, Walter Prescott Webb told the story of this unique law enforcement agency as no one else could. Forsaking the historian's ivory tower, Webb rode with the Rangers in the days when desperate, greedy men thought the border between Texas and Mexico was an open gate to bootleggers. He loved the harsh country through which the Rangers rode, and he loved the tempering of the steel within the Rangers that came from a life short on comfort and long on danger. The Texas Rangers grew out of the stories Webb heard around Ranger campfires at night, as the men drank coffee and swapped tales of their adventures. In this audiobook, popular Texas folk singer Steve Fromholz brings to life the very best of those stories. Two tapes offer nearly two hours of listening pleasure. The book was abridged by Turk Pipkin.
